Healthgrades award honors Medical City North Hills for hysterectomy
North Richland Hills, TX–Medical City North Hills has been recognized for excellence in hysterectomy procedures with a 5-star recognition by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems. This 5-star rating indicates that the clinical outcomes at Medical City North Hills are statistically significantly better than expected for the procedure.
“This 5-star award demonstrates our commitment to quality and would not be possible without the collaborative focus, training and communication between our nursing staff and physicians,” says Mark Deno, CEO at Medical City North Hills. “The recognition reinforces our shared mission to the care and improvement of human life.”
The 5-star designation is the third in a row for Medical City North Hills.
“Hospital quality should be top of mind for consumers when they evaluate and compare hospital performance,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Women who select a hospital with a 5-star rating can feel confident in their choice knowing that these organizations are committed to providing exceptional women’s care to their patients.”
Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 16 states for years 2016 through 2018. Healthgrades found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received 5-stars and those that have not. For example, from 2016 through 2018, women having a hysterectomy in hospitals rated 5-stars have, on average, a lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated by hospitals rated as 1-star.
Medical City North Hills is one of nine Medical City Healthcare hospitals honored for outstanding women’s services in the 2020 Women’s Care Awards, including Medical City Alliance, Medical City Arlington, Medical City Dallas, Medical City Las Colinas, Medical City Lewisville, Medical City McKinney, Medical City Plano, and Medical City Weatherford.
