Departments rank in the top 10 percent of all HCA Healthcare nursing units

Medical City McKinney’s emergency and surgical services departments received honorable mentions for the HCA Healthcare 2018 Unit of Distinction award. This annual award program recognizes and rewards exemplary nursing units at HCA Healthcare facilities.

The “Unit of Distinction” designation is achieved through measurable, exemplary performance in the strategic areas of advocacy and leadership, consistency in nursing practice and operations, and leveraging scale to drive performance. During 2018, approximately 1,200 HCA Healthcare nursing units participated in the program. Using specific criteria, nursing units are evaluated and scored based on performance.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized among the top performing emergency and surgical services units across the company,” said Cassidi Roberts, CNO for Medical City McKinney. “Our nurses are committed to the highest level of collaboration and teamwork.”

An important component of the program is HCA Healthcare’s sponsorship of nurses to obtain national certification through programs accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties. This year, more than 2,600 HCA Healthcare-affiliated nurses expanded their professional knowledge and advanced their individual and professional skills to earn certification. Medical City McKinney has more than 145 nationally certified nurses on staff.
