DENTON – Medical City Denton has been named one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023, according to new research released by Healthgrades, a leading resource for patients. This achievement puts Medical City Denton in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures.
“We are honored and proud to receive this national recognition,” says Steven Edgar, Medical City Denton CEO. “This is emblematic of the tireless dedication from our team of clinicians and colleagues to consistently deliver high-quality care to patients in our community when and where they need it the most.”
A-rated for safety by the Leapfrog Group, Medical City Denton is the only hospital in Denton County to be designated a Level II Trauma Center. Additionally, Medical City Denton is a Primary Stroke Center, a Cycle 6 Chest Pain center, certified by The Joint Commission for total hip and total knee replacement, hip fracture and Magnet® recognized for nursing excellence.
Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals. This year’s analysis revealed significant variation between America’s Best 250 Hospitals and hospitals that did not receive the distinction. In fact, if all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 250 Best, over 160,000 lives could have been saved.*
“We’re proud to recognize Medical City Denton as one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals for 2023,” says Brad Bowman, MD, chief medical officer at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 250 Best Hospitals, Medical City Denton consistently delivers better-than-expected outcomes for the patients in their community and is setting a high national standard for clinical excellence.”
Medical City Arlington, Medical City Fort Worth, Medical City McKinney and Medical City Plano were also named to the prestigious Healthgrades America’s 250 Best Hospitals list.
