Out of 620 hospitals in Texas, four Dallas-Fort Worth area hospitals take their place in the Top 10 for best hospitals in the Lone Star State. 

The hospitals are ranked according to 16 medical specialties, both data and performance based. Some of outlined categories are cancer; ear, nose, and throat; neurology and neurosurgery; urology; rehabilitation; and psychiatry, just to name a few. 

Each specialty then ranks each hospital according to their performance across multiple conditions and procedures. The statistical data used for compiling the national and state lists came from databases, the American Hospital Association and other renowned, professional organizations. All in all, hospital ranking sums up to be a very lengthy process. 

Topping out at number two in the list whilst maintaining the number one spot in DFW is Baylor University Medical Center. Baylor Hospital is nationally ranked for the following categories: Diabetes & Endocrinology (#30),Gastroenterology & GI Surgery (#15), Nephrology (#38), Neurology & Neurosurgery (#40) Orthopedics (#41)  and Pulmonology (#35).

University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center ranks number 4 on the Texas Top 10 and at number 2 as the metroplex’s best hospital. UT Southwestern is nationally ranked #47 in Geriatrics and #22  in Neurology & Neurosurgery. 

Next in line is Fort Worth’s own Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital. It is ranked at number 9 in the state and number 3 in the metroplex. Although not nationally ranked, Harris Methodist Hospital exhibits high performance in 11 of the 16 specialties.

Lastly, and certainly not the least on the list, is Medical City Dallas Hospital, #10 on the Texas Top 10 and the fourth best hospital in DFW. Medical City is high performing in 9 of the 16 categories.

None of the aforementioned hospitals could have achieved such high-standing honors without their medical staff. Congratulations to all!
