UT Southwestern Medical Center

The UT Southwestern William P. Clements Jr. University is a patient centered hospital, designed from the ground up to provide individualized care in a comfortable and safe environment. In December of 2014 the hospital officially opened its doors and the benefits of incorporating the best practices from the nation's top facilities are already apparent.

UT Southwestern Medical Center is the # 1 Cancer Hospital in Dallas with a 10/10 ranking for patient survival according to US News & World Report Best Rankings.  For more information, please click this link

Although the benefit of NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center designation may not be immediately apparent, research has demonstrated the survival advantage to receiving your care in association with one of these centers. According to a recent study from the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, cancer deaths are 25% lower at NCI-designated cancer centers. Wolfson et al. in Cancer 2015 demonstrated that for a wide range of cancers including oral cancer, there was a statistically significant survival benefit to receiving their cancer care at an NCI designated facility (p = .009). The 5 year overall survival at an NCI designated comprehensive cancer center was improved by an average of 10% and up to 18%. This improvement in survival was noted at all time points from 1 year through 9 years.

Also, there are benefits to receiving your care at a teaching hospital. Occasionally, patients are justifiably concerned to have residents or fellows participating in their care, but research has shown time and time again that teaching hospitals are associated with better outcomes. The American Journal of Medicine article in 2002 by Polanczyk et al. was an important determinant of outcomes. In-hospital mortality (death) was lower in major teaching hospitals.

In an article titled, "Teaching Hospitals and Quality of Care: A Review of the Literature" Ayanian et al., After reviewing all available literature and prior studies on the issue, concluded that "the balance of evidence from the most rigorous studies demonstrated a moderately to substantially better overall quality of care in major teaching hospitals than in nonteaching hospitals ...
