Baylor Scott & White Health Recognized by U.S. News & World Report as Most Awarded Not-for-profit Healthcare System in Texas

DALLAS and TEMPLE, Texas – In the midst of great transformation in the healthcare field, Baylor Scott & White Health remains committed to safe, quality care while working to drive down costs and improve each patient's experience. Today, U.S. News & World Report recognized that commitment in its 2019-20 Best Hospitals list, and Baylor Scott & White Health is the most awarded not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas for the second year in a row.

"This recognition is a direct reflection of our team members' commitments to making healthcare better for those we serve," said Jim Hinton, CEO of Baylor Scott & White Health. "We are honored to once again be included on this prestigious list; but most importantly, we remain laser focused in our work to consistently deliver high-value, affordable care with an exceptional experience."

How to Use the Ratings and Rankings

With more information than ever before to help them select a care provider, consumers can be empowered with the information in the U.S. News Best Hospitals list. Now in its 30th year, the list helps patients and caregivers find the best medical centers for themselves and their families by scoring hospitals based on several factors, including survival, patient safety, nurse staffing and more. Hospitals are ranked nationally in specialties from cancer to urology and rated in common procedures and conditions, such as heart bypass surgery, hip and knee replacement and COPD. Hospitals are also ranked regionally within states and major metro areas.

Baylor Scott & White Medical Centers Among the Nation's Top Hospitals for Specialty Care

For the 2019-20 rankings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. In 16 specialty areas, 165 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty, including two Baylor Scott & White medical centers. Four of the system's hospitals are also recognized as "High Performing" in at least one specialty, meaning they are among the top 10% in the nation.

  • Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital – Plano is ranked #27 in the nation for Cardiology & Heart Surgery.
  • Baylor University Medical Center is ranked #45 nationally in Gynecology. High performing medical specialties recognized as being in the top 10% in the nation include
  • Gastroenterology & GI Surgery, Nephrology and Orthopedics.
  • Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple is recognized as High Performing and among the top 10% in the nation for two specialties: Nephrology and Pulmonology & Lung Surgery.
  • Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Plano is named High Performing and among the top 10% in the nation in both Gastroenterology & GI Surgery and Pulmonology & Lung Surgery.
  • Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation – Dallas earned a High Performing rating and is among the top 10% in the nation for Rehabilitation.

 

To qualify for ranking consideration, hospitals in 12 of those specialties had to be a teaching hospital and have a sufficient number of beds or a sufficient level of important medical technology. To remain eligible, hospitals had to meet a series of progressively tougher standards to be ranked in those 12 specialties.
