Baylor Dallas Recognized In U.S. News Media Group's 2009 - 2010 America's Best Hospitals
Date:7/16/2009

n facilities, marking 13 years for Baylor Rehab's recognition in the "America's Best Hospitals" issue. "I couldn't be more proud of our dedicated staff and physicians for earning this high honor again this year," says Jon Skinner, president, Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation. "They are absolutely driven to offer each patient their very best each day--and all those successful days have added up to 13 years on this prestigious list."

Methodology

The rankings in 12 of the 16 specialties--all but ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation, and rheumatology--are predominantly driven by hard data. There are four components: reputation, death rate, patient safety (new this year), and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services. In these 12 specialties, hospitals have to pass through several gates to be ranked and considered a Best Hospital:

1. The first gate determines whether a hospital is eligible to be ranked at all by requiring that it must meet any of three conditions: be a teaching hospital; have at least 200 beds; or have at least 100 beds plus at least four out of eight key medical technologies such as current-generation CT scanners and precision radiation therapy.

2. The second gate determines whether a hospital is eligible to be ranked in a particular specialty. To be eligible, the hospital had to either have at least a specified volume of certain procedures and conditions over three years, or had to have been nominated by at least one physician in the last three years of our annual specialist survey.

3. The third gate is whether a hospital does well enough to be ranked, based on its reputation, death rate, patient safety, and factors like nurse staffing and technology. In the four other specialties--ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation, and rheumatology--ranking is based solely on nominations from the three most recent physician surveys.
