Abrazo Arrowhead Campus, 18701 N. 67th Ave., Glendale received an “A” rating in The Leapfrog Group’s Fall 2019 Safety Score, demonstrating the hospital’s commitment to delivering safe, high-quality patient care.

It is the fourth consecutive top grade for the hospital.

The Leapfrog Group Hospital Safety Score is a rating system designed to give consumers information they can use to make health care decisions for themselves or a loved one. The Leapfrog Group assigns A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals based on their ability to prevent errors, injuries, accidents and infections.

“Serving the Northwest Valley community for more than 30 years means 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,” said Jeff Patterson, Abrazo Arrowhead Campus chief executive officer.

Abrazo Arrowhead’s sister hospitals, Abrazo West Campus, 13677 W. McDowell Road, Goodyear and Abrazo Central Campus, 2000 W. Bethany Home Road, Phoenix, also earned A grades in The Leapfrog Group’s Fall 2019 Safety Score.
