Dallas-based staffing company AMN Healthcare has been named to the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index for the sixth year in a row. The index scores publicly-traded companies on five different categories, which include female leadership, equal pay, an inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brands. At AMN, 69 percent of employees are women, as is the CEO and 56 percent of the board of directors.


Krysla Karlix has been named chief executive officer for Medical City Green Oaks. She has been a part of the executive team at the hospital since December 2016. Karlix will be responsible for patient operations at Medical City Green Oaks, which includes the 124-bed inpatient hospital, two outpatient clinics, 24-hour psychiatric services, and telepsychiatry services.


Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth has received accreditation from Surgical Review Corporation (SRC) as a Center of Excellence in hernia surgery.
