As a MTC 2012 Certified organization, Memorial Hermann completed an inspection process that included interviews, examination of documents and evaluation of policies and programs, and passed inspection of 100 percent of the 2012 criteria.
“The thorough inspection process ensures that certified organizations have demonstrated their ability to deliver a positive patient experience through exceptional customer service and quality care,” said Jim Tate, President of the Commission. “I’d like to congratulate Memorial Hermann –Texas Medical Center, who now represents the leading edge in best in class service to their International Patients.”
The MTC Certified mark — a “seal of approval” for hospitals treating International Patients — provides the benchmark for optimal patient service experiences. By looking to organizations with the MTC Certified seal, patients, embassies, medical travel facilitators and providers can reduce their risk in selecting a suitable hospital for the delivery of needed medical care.
MTC’s certification criteria and its design for a certification inspection process have been thoroughly researched and vetted, taking into account the industry Best Practices and available standards, and comparing certification processes in other industries and other countries. The inspection process is designed to rigorously compare organization practices against the special needs of International Patients, including their communication and clinical needs.
