Fort Worth – Medical City Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures.
“We are honored to be recognized by Healthgrades as one of the best hospitals in the U.S.,” says Ben Coogan, CEO of Medical City Fort Worth. “This recognition is further validation why Medical City Fort Worth continues to be the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in the greater Fort Worth area.”
The only hospital in the Fort Worth medical district to be “A” rated for safety by the Leapfrog Group, Medical City Fort Worth is a designated comprehensive stroke center and a Joint Commission-certified chest pain center. Named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Spine Surgery™ by Healthgrades, Medical City Fort Worth is 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 Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth 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 Denton, Medical City McKinney and Medical City Plano were also named to the prestigious Healthgrades America’s 250 Best Hospitals list.
