  1. staff expertise
  2. facility license
  3. patient safety
  4. patient noncompliance
  5. Code of Conduct violation

    or

  6. insufficient ASUHS equipment or financial resources.

Patients will be allowed 30 days to complete follow-up care that was underway while the patient was eligible.

ASUHS laboratory, radiology, and electrocardiography services are provided to employees and students seen by ASU health care providers, residents, and consultants (both on and off campus).

See the ASU Health Services Web site for additional information.
