ARLINGTON, Texas — Three Texas Health Resources hospitals are among the best in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and the top 20 in Texas for complex care, according to an annual report by the U.S. News & World Report.
Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth ranked No. 4, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas No. 5 and Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth No. 6 in the D-FW area in the publication’s annual 2020-2021 Best Hospitals report.
“Though we continue to meet consumers where and when they need us, hospitals remain an integral part of our health system,” said Barclay Berdan, FACHE, CEO of Texas Health Resources. “This recognition shows that beyond the courageous work being done for each patient inside our hospitals and practices during this COVID-19 pandemic, we also continue to excel in providing compassionate and outstanding care in an array of hospital-based specialties to best meet North Texans’ needs.”
Each year, U.S. News showcases the nation's highest performing hospitals based largely on objective data including risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
