Plaza Medical Center and Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth tie for fifth place on U.S. News & World Report’s newly released Best Hospitals in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Launched four years ago, the magazine’s annual regional ranking is intended to give patients performance information on hospitals not nationally ranked.

Eligibility for Best Regional Hospital recognition is restricted to general medical-surgical hospitals providing clinical services, according to the magazine’s website.

Surgical hospitals, cancer hospitals, rehabilitation hospitals, psychiatric hospitals and other specialized facilities were ineligible even if they were nationally ranked or high performing in one or more Best Hospitals specialties or were rated as high performing in any Best Hospitals for Common Care procedures or conditions.

Claiming first place in this year’s ranking was Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas; UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, second place; and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, third.

Medical City Dallas Hospital, Dallas placed fourth; Plaza Medical Center and Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth, tying for fifth; and Baylor Regional Medical Center, Grapevine, seventh.

Baylor Medical Center at Irving and Medical Center of Plano tied for eighth; and Parkland Memorial Hospital, Dallas placed 10th. Places 6 and 9 did not appear due to the tie rankings.
