This Office of Inspector General Comprehensive Healthcare Inspection Program report describes the results of a focused evaluation of the inpatient and outpatient settings of the Northern Arizona VA Health Care System, which includes the Bob Stump VA Medical Center in Prescott and multiple outpatient clinics in Arizona.
