Texas Orthopedic Hospital recognized as a Top-Rated Hospital for Outpatient Orthopedics

Houston, TX – Texas Orthopedic Hospital announced today it is a five-star rated hospital for Outpatient Back & Neck Surgery, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This five-star rating reflects the organization's dedication to clinical excellence and places Texas Orthopedic Hospital in the upper echelon of U.S. hospitals for outpatient orthopedics.

“It is an honor to be recognized with a five-star rating for outpatient back and neck surgery,” said Eric Becker, CEO of Texas Orthopedic Hospital. “Our colleagues and physicians continue to set the standard for delivering high-quality, specialized orthopedic care.”

To identify the top-rated hospitals for outpatient orthopedics, Healthgrades analyzed patient outcomes at short-term acute care facilities nationwide that offer critical outpatient orthopedic procedures in an outpatient environment. Healthgrades' analysis found that patients treated at hospitals that were rated five-stars for outpatient orthopedics have a demonstrably better chance at a smooth recovery than those treated at hospitals that were not recognized by Healthgrades. In fact, between 2020 and 2022, patients having outpatient orthopedic surgery at five-star rated hospitals have, on average, a 76.6% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than patients treated at one-star hospitals.*

“Texas Orthopedic Hospital exemplifies what it means to be a leader in outpatient orthopedics by delivering consistently superior outcomes in orthopedics,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Patients undergoing outpatient orthopedic procedures at Texas Orthopedic Hospital should feel confident in their decision to seek care from a facility with top marks in their procedure.”

As outpatient surgical volumes continue to grow, Healthgrades is proud to offer the industry's only outcomes-based outpatient ratings to help patients identify the best care for their needs. Consumers can visit Healthgrades.com to learn more about how Healthgrades measures hospital quality.
