Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth recently earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Brain Tumor Certification.
In 2016, Texas Health Fort Worth was the first brain tumor program in the state of Texas certified by The Joint Commission.
Last month, Texas Health Fort Worth underwent a rigorous on-site review, where a Joint Commission surveyor extensively reviewed clinical practice guidelines and performance measures.
“This recertification demonstrates the tireless work and commitment exhibited daily by our employees and physicians on the Texas Health Fort Worth medical staff,” Joseph DeLeon, hospital president, said in a news release. “Our customized approach to treating brain tumors hopefully allows patients to appreciate the quality care we strive to give – not for recognition – but because it’s the right thing to do.”
Established in 2002 and awarded for a two-year period, The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification evaluates clinical programs across the continuum of care.
Texas Health Fort Worth offers patients pertinent resources, which include a multidisciplinary team involving 13 neurosurgeons on the medical staff that collectively perform more than 1,200 elective surgeries each year.
