Fort Worth – For the fifth year in a row, Medical City Fort Worth is ranked in the top 10% nationally of inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRF) rated in the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation’s (UDSMR) database.
“This honor recognizes the high-quality, compassionate care that Medical City Fort Worth’s dedicated inpatient rehabilitation team provides to improve our patients’ lives and help them get back to daily activities,” says Medical City Fort Worth CEO Ben Coogan. “This national ranking is an additional verification why Medical City Fort Worth is the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in Fort Worth.”
UDSMR determined the rankings by using its program evaluation model (PEM), a tool that provides facilities with a composite performance score and percentile ranking drawn from more than 80% of all inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the country. The goal of UDSMR’s PEM Report Card is to recognize high-performing facilities for their delivery of quality patient care that is effective, efficient, timely and patient-centered.
“We are focused on helping our patients recover their strength and functional independence after a debilitating injury, stroke, trauma, amputation, neurological disorder and orthopedic injury,” says Neha Shah, DO, medical director of inpatient rehabilitation. “We are thrilled to be nationally recognized for providing quality patient care and for our commitment to excellence always.”
“To recognize the efficient and effective care it provides to its patients, we are pleased to present this award to Medical City Fort Worth,” says Troy Hillman, manager of the UDSMR’s Analytical Services Group. “Development of the PEM Report Card has served as a tool to identify and recognize high-performing facilities, to work with them to learn how they provide efficient and effective care, and to share what we learn with others to elevate the performance of all.”
