I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
U.S. News & World Report has ranked Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas among the nation’s top 50 hospitals in neurology and neurosurgery, digestive disorders, and orthopedics – making it one of the youngest hospitals in the country to be recognized in multiple specialties. The rankings appear in U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” issue.
Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was one of only 12 hospitals in Texas to appear in the rankings, which are based on reputation, clinical excellence and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services.
Last year, neurosurgeons on the medical staff at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas became the first in the U.S. to perform a surgical case using BrainSUITETM technology. The Nancy B. Hamon Intra-operative Magnetic Resonance Imaging Neurosurgical Suite, dedicated to precision and real-time imaging during brain surgery, is among the first of its kind in the world.
Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas employs an interdisciplinary approach in caring for people with digestive conditions. The hospital’s orthopedic services feature a continuum of care that showcase new therapies while encouraging prevention of injury and disease.
U.S. News & World Report editors weigh many factors when selecting America’s Best Hospitals. But at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, it all boils down to fulfilling our mission: To improve the health of the people in the communities we serve.
For Texas Health Resources and its faith-based hospitals – Harris Methodist, Presbyterian and Arlington Memorial – I’m Doug Hawthorne.
