U.S. News & World Report ranks three THR hospitals among DFW’s Top 5

U.S. News & World Report ranked three Texas Health Resources hospitals among the five best in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and the top 20 in Texas in its annual 2019-20 Best Hospitals report, Texas Health said in a news release.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas (No. 3), Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth (No. 4) and Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth (tied, No. 5) appeared on the annual rankings, which were released July 30.

“While Texas Health now reaches consumers through more than 350 points of access, hospitals remain vital to the core of our system. We’re proud that we provide exceptional hospital-based care,” said Barclay E. Berdan, FACHE, CEO of Texas Health Resources.

Overall, Southwestern Health Resources, the integrated care network formed by UT Southwestern Medical Center and Texas Health, had four hospitals among the top five in DFW, including the region’s No. 1 ranked facility, UT Southwestern Medical Center. Baylor Scott and White All Saints Medical Center–Fort Worth, along with Medical City Dallas, were ranked No. 5 on the report in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

“Our partnership with Texas Health Resources enables our organizations to bring the very best in medical care to those we serve throughout North Texas, from primary care and prevention to the most advanced medical interventions,” Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, president of UT Southwestern said in the news release. “Together, we continue to seek greater efficiencies and innovative solutions to expand access to quality care and improve the patient experience.”

Southwestern Health Resources hospitals ranked in the U.S. News annual report:

• UT Southwestern Medical Center — ranked No. 1 in the DFW area and No. 2 in Texas; seven nationally ranked specialties, including neurology & neurosurgery, geriatrics, nephrology, diabetes & endocrinology, urology, cardiology & heart surgery, and ear, nose & throat; rated as high-performing in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, aortic valve surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), colon cancer surgery, heart failure and lung cancer surgery.

• Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas — ranked No. 3 in the DFW area and tied for No. 11 in Texas; rated as high-performing in orthopedics specialty and for colon cancer surgery, COPD, heart bypass surgery, heart failure and hip replacement.

• Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth — ranked No. 4 in the DFW area and tied for No. 15 in Texas; rated as high-performing in AAA repair, colon cancer surgery, COPD and heart failure.

• Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth — tied for No. 5 ranking in the DFW area and tied for No. 17 in Texas; rated as high-performing in COPD, hip replacement and knee replacement.

For the 2019-20 rankings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions, the news release said. The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
