A Texoma hospital is being recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals in the United States — for the third time.
United Regional was selected for the Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals Award. The award is given based on performance and quality of care in hospitals across America.
The program looks at clinical care, safety, patient perception of care, efficiency and financial health.
This year’s recognition complements two consecutive years of 2013 and 2014.
“That’s one thing that doesn’t change for our organization, is our commitment to excellence,” United Regional President and CEO Phyllis Cowling said. “How we go about it is changing. We’ve got a lot on our plate this year, in terms of some facility enhancements and expansions, as well as implementing or beginning to implement a new electronic health record.”
United Regional was also named a 2017 top hospital by the Leapfrog Group which focuses on patient safety and quality.
