Texas Health Fort Worth Earns Notice for Neurosurgical Care

A Fort Worth hospital is first in state to earn national award for neurosurgical intensive care.


Texas Health Fort Worth is the first hospital in the state to be recognized by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses for its successful patient outcomes and unit performance in neurosurgical intensive care. 

The medical association recognized the Fort Worth hospital recently with its silver-level Beacon Award, an honor given to hospital units that “meet and exceed standards” and have a commitment to continuous learning and offering effective systems for patient care, according to D CEO Healthcare.

“Nurses working in the Neurosurgical ICU are committed to working collaboratively to meet and exceed the rigorous standards set forth by the Beacon Award,” Sherri Thacker-Williams, neurosurgical ICU manager at Texas Health Fort Worth, told D CEO Healthcare.

The hospital is one of only 11 neurosurgical ICU facilities in the U.S. to achieve silver-level status.
