Tyler, Texas (November 3, 2023) — The University of Texas at Tyler Health Science Center has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. Clinical care at the health science center is provided under the banner of UT Health North Campus Tyler.
Proximity and access are of the utmost importance when choosing between top hospitals. The America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024 ranking was created to identify the top hospitals at the state level. Hospitals from all US states were eligible for the ranking and included in the nationwide survey. The 25 states with the most hospitals according to the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) were surveyed individually. The remaining states were grouped into 4 regions: Northeast, Midwest, West, and South. Leading hospitals from these states were considered accordingly. Four data sources were used for the evaluation:
- Nationwide online survey: Over 10,000 medical professionals (doctors, hospital managers and healthcare workers) were asked to recommend the best hospitals (in and out of state) based on their expertise.
- Quality Metrics Data: Data from Medicare and Medicare Services available for Mortality, Safety, Readmission, Experience, Timely & Effective Care was considered.
- Patient Experience: Cleanliness of the hospitals and quietness, communication of the nurses/doctors and staff responsiveness, care transition, medicine communication, and discharge information.
- PROMS Implementation survey: To account for the increasing importance of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs).
“We are honored to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best-In-State Hospitals 2024,” said Zach Dietze, CEO of UT Health North Campus Tyler. “This prestigious recognition is a testament to the tireless work of our caregivers and their dedication to providing high quality care to the community in a safe environment.”
