Mayo Clinic Hospital Named One of the 10 Safest Hospitals in the US

Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix has been named to Consumer Reports magazine’s list of the 10 safest hospitals in the U.S., landing at No. 7. The magazine rated 1,159 hospitals nationwide for safety. These ratings are based on six categories of patient safety: hospital-acquired infections, readmissions, communication about new medications and discharge, overuse CT scanning, complications and mortality.

The data comes from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, state governments, and the Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit organization that collects data on hospital safety.

Mayo Clinic has been a proud member of the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce since 2000.
