DALLAS, May 7 Texas Institute for Surgery is among four winners of the North Texas Business Ethics Awards. The annual awards honor companies that demonstrate a firm commitment to ethical business practices in everyday operations, management philosophies and response to crises or challenges.
The Dallas-based surgical hospital was recognized by the Dallas Business Journal along with Haven Home Health LLC, Hospice Plus, and Loveable Smiles. The following three finalists also were recognized: Pursuit of Excellence Inc.; SOURCECORP, Inc.; and 1400 Words. TIS was a finalist in the 2009 Greater Dallas Business Ethics Awards.
"As a hospital, taking care of patients is the essence and main tenet of medicine - treat your patients fairly and with their interests foremost," said John Early, M.D., TIS Board Chairman and orthopedic surgeon.
Texas Institute for Surgery At Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas is a state of the art surgical hospital offering a full range of surgical procedures including orthopedic, spine, pain management and ENT, among others.
President Debbie Hay, RN, BSN, CASC, said the Ethics Award is a reflection of the culture of the hospital. "We value the employees. We value patient safety and we want to do the right thing."
Under Hay's leadership, TIS' rapid growth has been recognized five consecutive years with the Dallas 100 Award from the SMU Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship. The award recognizes North Texas' top 100 fastest-growing privately held companies.
TIS was founded and is jointly owned by a group of highly acclaimed surgeons and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. The physician-owned hospital is dedicated to providing the best in surgical services along with personal care, convenience and innovation, Hay said.
The hospital was the first in the Dallas-Forth Worth area to use the latest wireless HD technology in its operating rooms. The technology allows for greater surgeon flexibility in positioning the surgical monitors during procedures, decreased operating room clutter, and less downtime due to cable breakage.
The facility has 9 ORs, 3 pain management/lithotripsy treatment rooms, and CT scan radiology services. There are 9 inpatient beds for longer recovery needs. For more information or to find a physician, visit www.TexasInstituteForSurgery.com.
