In the Rose City we pride ourselves on our healthcare facilities, but it's always nice to have this reaffirmed by a national publication. U.S. News has included one Tyler, TX hospital among the best in the Lone Star State.

According to KXAN, "the hospitals are ranked based off their performance in different specialties like cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, geriatrics and psychiatry. Different procedures and conditions are weighed as well, including back surgery, heart bypass surgery, diabetes and kidney failure."

A big congratulations to the doctors, and staff working at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Hospital here in Tyler. The hospital came in at 9th on the list. Houston Methodist Hospital which topped the list in Texas also was a Top 20 hospital in the nation, ranking at No. 15 according to U.S. News.
