The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a healthcare organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care and demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards.
“This certification highlights and celebrates Texas Health Fort Worth’s commitment to providing an exceptional standard of care to every patient, every time,” said Olaide Ajayi, M.D., an independent neurosurgeon and spine surgeon on the Texas Health Fort Worth medical staff (https://www.texashealth.org/Providers/THPG/Texas-Health-Neurosurgery-and-Spine-Specialists/Neurosurgery/olaide-olawale-ajayi-md).

Texas Health Fort Worth is just the second hospital in Texas to earn Advanced Spine Surgery Certification from The Joint Commission; the other is in Corpus Christi.
