The new report says UCLA's Santa Monica Hospital, in contrast, received a top grade. I get nervous about composite rating systems so I went on the Leapfrog website [http://www.leapfroggroup.org/cp] which allows comparisons of hospitals and compared Reagan with Santa Monica. The two look pretty much the same as the image above shows. [Click on the image to enlarge.] Indeed, Reagan shows a somewhat better rating in one category than Santa Monica.

Maybe you can figure it out. It's true that Reagan himself didn't always promote healthy habits.
