No one likes going to the hospital. Many times you don’t plan on it either. But when you need to go, you want the absolute best care you can receive. And you certainly want that experience to be safe. That’s why The LeapFrog Group has made it the company’s mission to help you make the best decisions regarding your health care. For over 20 years  they have “collected, analyzed, and published hospital data on safety and quality in order to push the health care industry forward.” This puts a sense of transparency into the healthcare industry leading to higher quality of care and hospitals making “giant leaps forward in the safety, quality, and affordability.”

And The LeapFrog Group just released its 2023 Hospital Safety Grades. They have ranked each hospital in the nation as either an A, B, or C. You can read the full methodology on these scores here. Most of the Charlotte area hospitals received A grades though a few did receive B and even C grades. Does this mean you won’t get good care? No. But it’s information consumers have a right to know. All grades are the determination of The LeapFrog Group and you can view those and ones from any other city and state in the US here.
