Awards and Honors

Why Quality Matters

UTMB Health is dedicated to providing a world-class patient experience for our patients by delivering the most advanced care and providing the highest level of safety in our hospitals and clinics so patients can have the best possible outcomes.

Quality of care rankings and awards help patients make informed decisions on which health care providers deliver the highest quality of care in a safe environment.  While recognition for our ongoing efforts to deliver the best care is nice, the true value of quality of care rankings and awards is helping patients decide with confidence where to seek care.

Best Care

The hard work and dedication of the breast imaging team has resulted in national recognition. The program has been designated a “Center of Excellence” by the American College of Radiology.
