Medical City Fort Worth Earns Joint Commission’s Gold Seal for Heart Care

Medical City Fort Worth has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Chest Pain Certification. The seal is a symbol of quality reflecting an organization’s commitment to providing safe, effective patient care.

The Medical City Healthcare hospital underwent an intensive on-site review by the Joint Commission in October. The commission, the country’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare, evaluated the hospital’s compliance with national disease-specific care standards and with cardiology-specific requirements.

The hospital’s clinical practice guidelines and performance measures were also assessed.

“Medical City Fort Worth has thoroughly demonstrated a high level of care for patients with heart disease,” Patrick Phelan, executive director, Hospital Business Development, The Joint Commission, said in a news release. “We commend Medical City Fort Worth for being a leader in chest pain care.”
