Named Among Top 26 Health Systems Preferred Twice As Much As Competitors

Houston Methodist is excited to share that WebMD has awarded our health system the annual WebMD Elite Choice Award, naming Houston Methodist one of the top 26 health systems preferred “twice as much” as competitors in the local market.

WebMD began its Choice Awards program in 2021 to identify “best in class” health systems in a local region, strictly based on the perspective of patients and healthcare providers. This unique vantage point, without complicated formulas, is the first of its kind in the healthcare industry.

WebMD recognized 167 health systems with its general 2023-24 Choice Awards by administering surveys to providers and patients in different regions, measuring public consumer and healthcare provider perceptions of the best overall health systems for specific specialties, including Oncology, Cardiology, Orthopedics, Neurology, and Gastroenterology.

However, determining the 26 individual Elite Choice Award recipients required taking the assessment further to learn which of the 167 “Choice” health systems patients and providers prefer 2:1 over local competitors.

Houston Methodist could not be more proud of our teams for their hard work and commitment to providing the best quality care in every specialty we offer our patients. Our staff's daily contributions and efforts helped our organization achieve another prestigious award and significant milestone. Houston Methodist is immensely grateful for our employees and would like to congratulate our people for continuing to inspire us with their compassion and dedication to improving the health and well-being of our patients, their families, and the community.
