Medical City Plano is named the “Best Hospital” for the second consecutive year and the “Best Emergency Room” for the fourth consecutive year by voters in the Plano Star Courier Reader’s Choice Awards. The award is a result of the newspaper’s annual readership survey, the 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards, published in the January 29, 2017 edition.

“We pride ourselves in offering the highest-quality, most comprehensive healthcare to our community,” said Charles Gressle, CEO of Medical City Plano. “Receiving this public endorsement is a testament to the dedication of our physicians, employees, and volunteers.”

The Brain & Spine Hospital at Medical City Plano is also the largest in the region, providing world-renowned neuroscience care.
