In 2012, Texas Health Fort Worth was the first hospital in Tarrant County to earn the NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) designation from the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University College of Nursing. The designation, given to hospitals exhibiting a dedication to excellence in the treatment of patients 65 and over, will provide caregivers the knowledge and specialized training necessary for a more comprehensive approach to caring for the older adult population.
