Texas Health is part of the health and wellness deliveries from drone delivery company Wing, which has launched in Dallas Fort Worth in partnership with Walgreens. The first commercial drone delivery service in the region will appear in Frisco and Little Elm, and drones will deliver first aid kits from Texas Health among other products. Anyone can order a first aid kit through the Wing app, but Texas Health patients will receive a code to make the kit free.

Medical City Healthcare hospitals won the “Best Place to Have a Baby” recognition DFWChild magazine’s annual rankings. Medical City Dallas, Medical City Plano, Medical City Arlington, and Medical City Lewsiville were all named the best hospital for expectant mothers in their respective counties.

Sinai Urgent Care has been rebranded as Citra Urgent Care. The organization has been operating in Dallas Fort Worth for six years, and has five clinics throughout North Texas. This year, the urgent care brand is looking to double its footprint in the region with five more locations.

Texas Oncology has established the Texas Oncology Surgical Specialties, which reorganizes the capabilities of the network. The surgical team at Texas Oncology has expanded in recent years, and includes 124 surgeons in breast, gynecologic, urologic, colorectal, neuro-oncology, thoracic, and surgical oncology. Last year, Texas Oncology performed 53,000 procedures. Dr. Michael Teneriello, an Austin gynecological oncologist, will serve as chief surgical officer of the new organization. He has been with Texas Oncology for 26 years.

Medical City Arlington has received certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center from the DNV denoting the highest level of serious stroke care. The designation is based on standards from the Brain Attach Coalition and American Stroke Association.
