HARKER HEIGHTS, TX — Seton Medical Center Harker Heights was named one of the nation’s top 100 hospitals by IBM Watson Health.

IBM Watson Health compiles a list of the nation’s top hospitals based on publicly available clinical, operational and patient satisfaction metrics and data.

“To be recognized among the best in the nation is a reflection of Seton Medical Center Harker Heights’ ongoing commitment to continuously improve healthcare outcomes while providing outstanding care and controlling costs,” Zach Dietze, Seton Medical Center Harker Heights CEO. “I want to thank our associates and physicians whose intense focus and hard work makes recognition like this possible. They are an exceptional team and I’m honored to work beside them.”

The study, which has been conducted since 1993, found that top hospitals achieved better risk-adjusted outcomes while maintaining a lower average cost per beneficiary and higher profit margins.
