Gerard FranciscoTIRR Memorial Hermann has been recognized as No. 1 in Texas in Newsweek magazine’s inaugural list of Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers, which was released last summer. This comes on the heels of our ranking by U.S. News World Report as No. 1 in Texas and No. 3 in the United States.

Newsweek’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2020 ranking lists the best facilities in the 20 states with the largest number of facilities according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Instead of basing their list solely on reputation, Newsweek partnered with Statista, a global market research firm, to score facilities based on CMS data including quality of care, quality of service, and quality of follow-up care, as well as an online survey taken by thousands of physicians, therapists, and staff working in rehabilitation facilities.

Each year, about half of all Americans over the age of 18 sustain a musculoskeletal injury that lasts longer than three months, and more than a million people nationwide undergo joint replacement surgery. The quality of therapy these people receive after a life-altering injury or illness significantly affects their recovery. We’re committed to helping the men, women and children who pass through our doors reach as high as they can – and then just a little higher – to achieve things that once seemed impossible. We are honored that Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report have recognized that commitment.
