The Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation, a not-for-profit corporation that reports global rehabilitation data, ranked Medical City McKinney in the top 10% of rehab centers, according to a December news release.
The recognition is based on cases discharged between October 2020 and September 2021, the release said. The UDSMR evaluated facilities on delivering patient care that sufficiently spanned four qualities: effective, efficient, timely and patient-centered. There were 856 inpatient rehabilitation centers that qualified for the ranking, per the release.
The hospital was also awarded five-star recognitions in September for both C-section and vaginal births.
“Medical City Rehabilitation Institute McKinney thrives on getting patients back to an independent lifestyle in an effective, efficient and timely manner,” Medical City McKinney CEO Ernest C. Lynch III said in the release. “This national recognition is a testament to our therapists and nurses’ dedication to the care and improvement of human life.”
Medical City McKinney’s rehabilitation center treats patients experiencing a variety of limitations. Some of their recovery goals may include increasing physical and/or cognitive function, improving communication abilities, increasing independence in self-care and providing knowledge of resources available during the transition back home.
“We are focused on helping our patients recover their strength and function after a debilitating injury, stroke, trauma, amputation, neurological disorder and orthopedic injury,” Director of Therapy Services Allison Wheeler said in the release. “We are thrilled to be nationally recognized for providing quality patient care and for our commitment to excellence always.”
