Northwest Texas Healthcare System has been named by U.S. News & World Report as a 2024-2025 Best Hospital. Northwest Texas Healthcare System ranked in Heart Attack and Heart Failure among U.S. News’ 2024-2025 edition of Best Hospitals.

“We are proud of our medical providers and staff who contributed to this great achievement. Our goal is to provide our community with high quality care and this recognition is a representation of the work we continue to do to keep our friends and families close to home,” shared Jason Barrett, CEO, NWTHS.

U.S. News evaluated nearly 5,000 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions; only 11% of evaluated hospitals earned a Best Hospitals ranking. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.

“For 35 years, U.S. News has been a leading resource for patients navigating their health care decisions,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “A 'Best Hospital' recognition empowers patients to seek out medical care from the best of the best to treat their illness or condition.”

To calculate the Best Hospitals rankings, U.S. News evaluated each hospital’s performance on objective measures such as risk-adjusted mortality rates, preventable complications and level of nursing care. The Best Hospitals Specialty rankings methodology and Procedures & Conditions ratings methodology measure patient outcomes using data from millions of records provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This year, among other methodology refinements, U.S. News incorporated new data on care provided to patients with Medicare Advantage insurance and on care provided to outpatients, nearly doubling the number of patients included in its annual data analysis. The Procedures & Conditions ratings are based entirely on objective quality measures. For more information, visit Best Hospitals and use #BestHospitals on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and X.
