How to use DLS Search
Type a word (or several words) into the query boxes and select the
appropriate search type: Starts with, Is or Contains.
After selecting your search criteria, press the Start Search button
(or the Enter key on your keyboard). DLS Search looks for locations that match
ALL of the terms you have specified.
For example: if you enter Capri in the Name box with a search type of contains
and Phoenix in the City box with a search type of Starts with or is , the
DLS Search will look for locations with the word Capri in the name AND are located in Phoenix.
Hints for searching
If you have entered several words (e.g., Cook Health Care Center,
and the search does not return the results you want, try typing just one
or two of the words (e.g., Cook with a search type of Starts with or Contains), and press Start Search.
This technique also may help when searching for street addresses (try 1919 with a search
type of Starts with instead of 1919 W. Thomas).
The DLS Search is not case specific; it will match both upper-case and lower-case letters.
If you enter cook, DLS Search will match cook,
Cook, and COOK.
Remember to always set your search type ( Starts with, Is or Contains ) before
pressing the Start Search button.
If you are looking for locations in only one part of the Greater Phoenix area, try entering
a three-digit zip code and a search type of Starts with. To see addresses on the west
side, use 853. Entering 850 will provide mostly central
Phoenix addresses, and 852 will give you east Valley locations.
Avoid using common terms (e.g., health) which will match records you may
not wish to see.
You do not have to fill in each query box in the search form. Enter the minimum information
needed to locate a facility. (e.g., A key word for the name or city and just numbers for the
