Leapfrog group

Maine once again ranks among the top five states in the U.S. for hospital safety, according to the latest scores from the Leapfrog Group.

Maine ranks near the top in the country for hospital safety, according to the Leapfrog Group, which has released its latest spring hospital safety rankings.

Maine has held the top slot in these rankings the past four times they’ve been released. This time around, says Leapfrog Group’s Erica Mobley, Vermont took the No. 1 spot for its percentage of hospitals with high safety scores, and Maine dropped to No. 2.
