North Texas Hospitals Appear On Healthgrades’ 2018 Lists for Safety and Patient Experience

I missed this from earlier in the month, but Healthgrades put out its annual lists of hospitals that provide the highest level of safety and best patient experience. There are a good number of North Texas hospitals on each.

Healthgrades, an online resource that helps place patients with providers, looks at 13 patient safety indicators within Medicare data to compile its safety list, which it says represents the top 10 percent of all short-term acute care hospitals reporting the data. The outstanding patient experience list represents the top 15 percent for patient experience from about 3,500 hospitals that have submitted at least 100 patient experience surveys to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The safety awards are based on analysis of 2014 through 2016, while Healthgrades analyzed admissions from April 2016 through March 2017 for the patient experience awards. More on the process here, and below, the North Texas hospitals that made the respective lists:
