The five quality categories are: safety of care, mortality, patient experience, readmission rates and timely and effective care. Data reporting periods range from July 2018 to March 2022, depending on the measure.

Most recently, Banner – University Medical Center South Campus was named one of the most socially responsible hospitals in America, receiving “A” grades in Health Equity, Value and Patient Outcomes from the Lown Institute.
