Methodist McKinney Hospital is proud to announce they have been recognized as a 2017 Women’s Choice Award recipient for America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care. The award, created to ensure that women have the appropriate tools when making important healthcare decisions, reflects the desire of Methodist McKinney Hospital to provide elevated emergency healthcare to members of McKinney and surrounding communities.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the Women’s Choice Awards for emergency care,” said Joe Minissale, president of Methodist McKinney Hospital. “Everyone in our emergency department, from physicians to our nursing and ancillary staff, takes the care they provide very seriously. We’re very proud to know that women who are needing emergency care can rely on us to help them make the best healthcare decisions for themselves and their families.”

Methodist McKinney Hospital strives to meet elevated healthcare expectations by delivering unparalleled healthcare services to its community. Prioritizing the patient’s experience and care, along with high marks from both the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS), the Women’s Choice Award was able to determine that Methodist McKinney ranked among the best in the nation for emergency care.

“Our emergency department provides 24-hour emergency care with little or no wait time and is prepared to handle numerous medical emergencies that may arise at any time,” continued Minissale. “With our ER physicians now in-network with most major insurance carriers, we’re able to continue elevating our healthcare and making it easier when life doesn’t necessarily go according to plan. We’re always here when our friends and neighbors need us.”

Founded in 2007, the Women’s Choice Award recognizes hospitals across the nation in order to empower women and provide the ability to choose facilities that best suit their needs. It is the only designation that integrates both clinical excellence and consumer experience into their nominations and serves as an advocate for reliable and dependable care.
