The expert physicians and compassionate staff members at our local nonprofit health system make quality; safety and world-class patient care their top priority.” 

The hospital safety score uses 26 measures of the publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single score representing a hospital’s overall success in keeping patients safe from infections, injuries, and medical and medication errors.

The sources of data include the Centers for Meadicare and Medicaid Services and information hospitals voluntarily report to Leapfrog.

Leapfrog President  & CEO, Leah Binder said, “Hospitals that earn an A have demonstrated their commitment to their patients and their community.

Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare, Scottsdale Healthcare Research Institute and Scottsdale Healthcare Foundation."
