Stocks in this article: USMD

USMD Holdings, Inc. ( NASDAQ: USMD), a physician-led integrated healthcare system, announced today that USMD Hospital at Arlington has, once again, made the CareChex Hospital Quality Rankings List for being a top-performing hospital.

USMD Hospital at Arlington is ranked #1 in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and #2 in the state of Texas, for Cancer Care for 2014. The Cancer Care clinical category includes the medical treatment of malignant breast disorders, respiratory neoplasms, and leukemia, as well as surgeries, including mastectomies, kidney procedures for neoplasm and lymphoma with major operating room procedures.

The cancer treatment program at USMD Hospital at Arlington utilizes a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach involving a team of experts that includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gene testing and counseling specialists, nurse navigators and integrative health coordinators. The team works together to create a customized treatment plan tailored to the individual needs of each patient.

“Being ranked #1 in the DFW area by CareChex for cancer care is a huge honor,” said John House, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of USMD Holdings. “USMD is committed to a patients-first culture, and this year’s rankings are affirmation of that. It is great to see our team being recognized for their hard work and commitment to our patients, and I want to congratulate all of the physicians and staff associated with USMD Hospital at Arlington on this incredible accomplishment.”

USMD Hospital at Arlington is also ranked #6 in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and #15 in Texas, for Overall Surgical Care for 2014. The Overall Surgical Care category consists of all inpatient surgical procedures performed by full-service hospitals, with the exception of Heart Assist System Implants and Pancreas Transplants.

“USMD Hospital at Arlington offers patients advanced medical treatment and state-of-the-art technologies, but more important than that, we offer our patients high-quality, compassionate care,” said Karen Fiducia, president of USMD Hospital Services, which manages the operations of the USMD hospitals. “These CareChex rankings are a testament to the type of care and quality of treatment we’re consistently providing to patients.”
