Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital recently received national recognition for its inpatient facilities. The New York-based Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation named the hospital one of its “Top Performing” centers for 2017, providing “effective, efficient, timely, and patient-centered care.”
Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital was formed by Methodist Health System and Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services. The 40-bed, comprehensive acute rehab hospital was created in southwestern Dallas County to improve patient care from disabling illness and injury in the under-treated area. According to the hospital, it is a “patient-centric facility designed with some of the latest technologies to help yield optimal outcomes for the patients served.”
The USDMR was created in 1983 to document the severity of patient disability and the outcomes of medical rehabilitation. Now, more than 16 million patient and hospital assessments are in its global database to track physical medicine and rehabilitation services and care.
Shari Moore, CEO of Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital, says it has worked nine years to become a premier rehabilitation provider for Dallas-Fort Worth. “We understand the importance of providing comprehensive, efficient, and quality services in today’s healthcare world,” Moore said in a statement. “We feel it is important to educate consumers and our referral sources as to the differences and value one receives when choosing and referring to Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital as compared to other levels of post-acute care services.”
