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.

The infographic at right is meant to help you understand the differences between these two programs.
