DALLAS — Five Medical City Healthcare hospitals have been named to the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® list, according to an independent quality analysis provided by PINC AI™ and reported by Fortune.

Medical City Alliance, Medical City Denton, Medical City Fort Worth, Medical City McKinney and Medical City Plano are among 32 HCA Healthcare hospitals nationwide named to this prestigious list.

“This recognition further distinguishes our hospitals regionally and nationwide,” says Allen Harrison, president of Medical City Healthcare. “Exceptional clinical quality combined with compassionate care are among the many reasons families choose Medical City Healthcare as the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in North Texas.”

To create the list, an objective, quantitative analysis of publicly available data was conducted to identify the top hospitals in the United States. The program leverages transparent, nonbiased data to help inform strategies for sustained performance. Organizations do not apply to participate in the study and award winners do not pay to market their honor.

This year, based on comparisons with a peer group of similar hospitals that were not winners, the analysis found that the winners of the 100 Top Hospitals® program delivered better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. Compared to non-winning hospitals, this year’s winners had:

  • 31 percent fewer deaths than non-winning hospitals.
  • 9 percent fewer patients with complications.
  • 39 percent fewer healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
  • Nearly 20 percent lower inpatient expenses per discharge.
  • 0.5-day shorter average length of stay.
  • Better reported patient experience scores, with a top-box Hospital Consumer Assessment
  • of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) score of 77 percent versus 70 percent
  • for non-winning hospitals.

“As hospitals continue to share the nation’s focus on changing healthcare for the better, hospitals and health systems are recognizing the importance of identifying areas within their walls for quality improvement,” says Leigh Anderson, Premier’s chief operating officer and the leader of PINC AI™. “The transparent and nonbiased measures this study provides help leaders make informed decisions for change and proves that these Medical City Healthcare hospitals excel across a range of core performance indicators, which can directly lead to significantly higher quality patient outcomes, with fewer readmissions and complications.”
