Meticulous two-year review process successfully completed
Fort Worth, TX – Medical City Alliance has earned a Level II Maternal Designation from the Texas Department of State Health Services. The designation comes after a meticulous two-year review process from a multi-disciplinary team appointed and approved by the State.
A Level II maternal designated facility provides high-quality care for pregnant and postpartum patients with medical, surgical and/or obstetrical conditions that present a low to moderate risk. Among the many requirements, the designation ensures:
- Access to a range of medical and maternal subspecialists, surgical specialists and behavioral health specialists
- Validation of skilled personnel with documented training, competencies and annual continuing education specific for the patient population served
- Verification of the hospital’s ability to provide care for pregnant patients with the capability to detect, stabilize and initiate management of unanticipated maternal–fetal or maternal issues that occur during the antepartum, intrapartum or postpartum period
- Availability of appropriate anesthesia, laboratory, pharmacy, radiology, respiratory therapy, ultrasonography and blood bank services on a 24-hour basis
“This designation is validation of our commitment to high-quality, safe care for mothers and their babies,” says Glenn Wallace, Medical City Alliance CEO. “Our board-certified physicians, expert clinicians and compassionate care teams are among the many reasons Medical City Alliance is the destination of choice for maternal care in north Fort Worth.”
Medical City Alliance women and children’s services are recognized nationally for safety and excellence in women’s and neonatal care. It received its second state designation for Level III neonatal intensive care from the Texas Department of State Health Services in 2021 and recently received Healthgrades 5-star awards for C-section and vaginal deliveries.
