For more than a decade, the University of Arizona Medical Center has been ranked among the nation’s best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.
The University of Arizona Health Network is Arizona’s... more first academic medical network. It includes the University of Arizona Medical Center - University Campus, the University of Arizona Medical Center - Diamond Children's, the University of Arizona Medical Center - South Campus, some 40 clinics, a health plan division and the practice plan for physicians from the University of Arizona College of Medicine. It’s been nationally recognized for providing exceptional patient care, teaching new health-care professionals and conducting groundbreaking research through the physician-scientists of the University of Arizona College of Medicine.
The University of Arizona Health Network was formed in 2010 as a result of an integration of University Medical Center and University Physicians Healthcare. The University of Arizona Health Network, which works in partnership with the University of Arizona College of Medicine, was created to facilitate better coordination, integration and promotion of clinical activities to support the College of Medicine’s education, research and patient-care goals.

Back before Banner took over and made things FUBAR, UMC was my Go to for all my emergency issues. But now The hospital staff all are understaffed and over worked, making them Miserable (which trickles... more down to us Patients) Their Billing department is a Joke! I have been getting bills for things and being told that a Insurance Co. that I have had NEVER heard of let alone have or use will not cover costs. Despite giving them My insurance info MULTIPLE TIMES!!! 4 months after and they are still making threats saying unknown insurance wont cover so I have to pay. Unless you want to be robbed Blind you need to avoid this place like the Plague. I am Still Currently trying to get through that I don't have Unknown Insurance but a Insurance that I actually have an account with!
TL;DR this place cares about no one but money, Staff is Good but stretched too thin. honestly just about anywhere else would be better (Prefer TMC at the current time of posting)
I am a Bone marrow transplant recipient visiting from Atlanta,Ga. I am currently under the care in Emory/ Winship cancer institute. I came in UMC with a sever sinus infection, the ER staff and Doctors... more were very good. Short wait time. The problems I encountered where after triage, I was asked to wait in the "holding room" I tiny room stacked with sick people( not a issue with normal people) but it's a very big issue with BMT patients because we already have a suppressed immune system on top of an infection. While up in my room, important medicine where not on time, blood pressure medicine was forgotten till very late, I was showing signs of sever hyper tension. When I asked for my blood cell and platelet counts, I was never told. When asked for a pain reliever, I was given norvac ( which a patient like my self doesn't work for a very long term) and that's in short increments. I keep a short form of my medical history with me while vacationing and my medicine list I'm on. Didn't really matter. So needless to say I checked out on my own and getting back to my Hospital ASAP. Sorry this happened, it use to be a really good place to go when it was University of Arizona Medical.
Wait times have been shorter than other hospitals, despite the more central location. They respect patient privacy and don't judge you for the... more circumstances of your visit. At all touchpoints, the staff have been friendly, caring, knowledgeable, insightful and sensitive to my needs, regardless of the reason I'm being seen. Moreover, UMC is a research hospital meaning you will always have access to the most current treatment options available.
Rate of readmission after discharge from hospital (hospital-wide)
Rate - 17.3% (1.3% above the national rate)
