Healthgrades awards recognize outstanding performance among hospitals nationally

DALLAS — Nine Medical City Healthcare hospitals have been honored for outstanding women’s services in the 2019 Women’s Care Awards by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

Medical City Alliance, Medical City Arlington, Medical City Dallas, Medical City Las Colinas, Medical City Lewisville, Medical City McKinney, Medical City North Hills, Medical City Plano, and Medical City Weatherford are among a select group of top hospitals nationally that were evaluated and validated for providing outstanding quality outcomes. The awards recognize superior performance by hospitals in women’s services, including obstetrics and gynecology, labor and delivery, and gynecology surgery. Each of the hospitals received a 5-star rating in one or more categories indicating that the hospital’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or performing the evaluated procedure.

“This recognition highlights our dedication to outstanding quality, patient-centered and compassionate care,” says Erol Akdamar, FACHE, president of Medical City Healthcare. “These awards are just one of the reasons Medical City Healthcare hospitals are the destination of choice for women’s care.”

The awards also reaffirm Medical City Healthcare’s investment in providing high quality women’s services across its North Texas system of care. Within the last year, dedicated women’s hospitals opened at Medical City Arlington and Medical City Dallas. Medical City Children’s Hospital is also home to a comprehensive Fetal Care Center, providing the region’s highest level of prenatal diagnosis and the full spectrum of fetal surgical procedures for unborn babies with complex and life-threatening birth defects. In addition, Medical City Frisco began delivering babies for the first time with the expansion of its women’s services.

“Healthgrades recognizes hospitals for providing exceptional care in a variety of cohorts for women’s health, and those that achieve a 5-star rating are focused on delivering high quality care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “As healthcare trends continue to improve and evolve, patients who select a hospital that is a 5-star recipient can feel confident in their decision when it comes to women’s care.”
