They were among 28 Kaiser Permanente hospitals around the country that received the top grade in the safety report, which examined the records of more than 2,600 hospitals in the U.S.
In Northern California, three other Kaiser Permanente hospitals received a "B" score, The Leapfrog Group's next highest mark.
