3 Abrazo Health hospitals receive top patient safety rating
Abrazo Health’s Arrowhead Hospital, Maryvale Hospital and Paradise Valley hospital each received an “A” rating in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2015 Safety Score, demonstrating the hospitals’ commitment to deliver safe, high-quality patient care.
The Leapfrog Group Hospital Safety Score is a rating system designed to give consumers information they can use to make healthcare decisions for themselves or a loved one. The Leapfrog Group assigns A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals based on their ability to prevent errors, injuries, accidents, and infections.
“This recognition is a result of our colleagues continually raising the bar on the quality of care we deliver to the metropolitan Phoenix community,” said Michele Finney, Abrazo Health Market Chief Executive Officer. “Our employees and physicians know that every patient should be treated as if they were a part of their own family, and our ‘A’ rating reflects this commitment.”
