The 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Survey is free and open to hospitals from April 1 to November 30. The annual survey assesses hospital safety, quality, and efficiency based on national performance measures that are of specific interest to health care purchasers and consumers. Survey Results are publicly reported, and provide hospitals with information to benchmark their progress in improving the care they deliver.

Leapfrog's Rating Programs
Leapfrog rates hospitals through its two main initiatives: the Leapfrog Hospital Survey and the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. If you receive hospital communications from Leapfrog, you may have seen information on both of these programs, perhaps even around the same time.
