Rhode Island had the most dramatic improvement, jumping from 50th in 2012 to number one in the fall of 2017.

Memorial Hospital of South Bend, Lakeland Regional Medical Center in St. Joseph, and Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne all received A grades. Then, Leapfrog says researchers weigh the evidence, opportunity for improvement and impact of each measure to calculate a grade.
