Commitment reflected in Leapfrog Spring 2021 Hospital Safety Grade

Abrazo Arrowhead Campus, 18701 N. 67th Ave., Glendale received an “A” rating in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2021 Hospital Safety Grades, reflecting the hospital’s commitment to delivering safe, high-quality patient care.

The nonprofit Leapfrog Group publishes its safety grades as a rating system designed to give consumers information they can use to make healthcare decisions for themselves or a loved one.

“Glendale and Northwest Valley residents have depended on Abrazo Arrowhead for quality, safe medical care for more than 30 years,” Abrazo Arrowhead Campus CEO Stephen Garner stated in a news release. “We sincerely appreciate those who entrust us with their care.”

Abrazo Arrowhead Campus is known for its surgical robotics, cardiovascular services and obstetrical care including a Level IIE Neonatal Intensive care Unit. The 217-bed teaching hospital is also home of the Abrazo Graduate Medical Education program’s Internal Medicine and General Surgery residencies.

“Maintaining an A grade during the pandemic is a testament to the dedication of our caregivers and hospital staff,” Mr. Garner added. “Every day we focus on how we can continually improve our delivery of care and patient satisfaction. Nothing is more important to us than offering our patients trusted care in a safe environment. We are proud to be recognized by The Leapfrog Group with its top grade for patient safety.”

The Leapfrog Safety Grade is the only rating focused entirely on how well hospitals protect patients from preventable errors, accidents, injuries, and infections. Across all states, only 33 percent of hospitals reporting data received an A grade.

Doctors, nurses and support staff continue to follow enhanced procedures to provide safe care for patients in all Abrazo Health hospitals throughout the Valley. Abrazo officials remind the public that delaying care or waiting to go to the ER can result in a greater risk of complications and lengthier recovery times if conditions are left untreated.
