Medical City McKinney announced in December that it is ranked in the top 10% of inpatient rehabilitation facilities ranked in the IRF database of Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation for cases discharged between October 2020 and September 2021.
“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. “This national recognition is a testament to our therapists and nurses’ dedication to the care and improvement of human life.”
The rankings were determined by using UDSMR, LLC’s program evaluation model (PEM), a case-mix-adjusted and severity-adjusted tool that provides facilities with a composite performance score and percentile ranking drawn from over 80 percent of all IRFs in the country. There were 856 inpatient rehabilitation facilities qualified for ranking. The goal is to recognize high-performing facilities for their delivery of quality patient care that is effective, efficient, timely and patient-centered. This is the 14th year that UDSMR, LLC has issued these awards.
“We are focused on helping our patients recover their strength and function after a debilitating injury, stroke, trauma, amputation, neurological disorder and orthopedic injury,” Therapy Services Director Allison Wheeler said. “We are thrilled to be nationally recognized for providing quality patient care and for our commitment to excellence always.”
The Medical City Rehabilitation Institute McKinney provides services to patients experiencing a variety of limitations, providing access to the care needed to return to an independent lifestyle.
“To recognize the efficient and effective care it provides to its patients, we are pleased to present this award to Medical City McKinney,” said Troy Hillman, manager of the Analytical Services Group at UDSMR, LLC. “This report card serves as a tool to identify and recognize high-performing facilities, to work with them to learn how they provide efficient and effective care, and to share what we learn with others to elevate the performance of all.”
