The Abrazo West Campus in Goodyear received an A rating in the Leapfrog Group’s Fall 2019 Safety Score. This is the sixth 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 healthcare 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.
“Abrazo West is proud to be recognized by The Leapfrog Group with its top grade for patient safety, which demonstrates our commitment to providing safe, high-quality care. This rating recognizes our continuous commitment to placing safety at the forefront of our patients’ care,” said Abrazo West Campus Chief Executive Officer Christina Oh.
“We have a number of initiatives underway to support these efforts. We have also been recognized for the quality of services we provide to our community, such as the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With the Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award and Target: Stroke Honor Roll award,” said Oh.
“We use this and other publicly available information to continually improve our processes, training and the way we deliver care to our patients,” she added.
