Dallas — Eleven Medical City Healthcare hospitals have been recognized for superior care in categories ranging from specialty surgeries, heart care and infection control by Healthgrades, the leading online resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.

Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions using Medicare data, and additional analyzes outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 16 states.

“These awards recognize our system’s dedication to quality, patient-centered and compassionate care across the wide variety of services we offer,” says Erol Akdamar, FACHE, president of Medical City Healthcare. “Exceptional quality is one of the many reasons Medical City Healthcare hospitals are the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in North Texas.”
