Cone Health Heart and Vascular Center Named to List of Great Heart Programs
Cone Health Heart and Vascular Center has been named among the “100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs-2016.” The list comes from the highly regarded industry publication Becker’s Hospital Review.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, and nearly half of Americans have at least one risk factor for heart disease. The hospitals and health systems included on the list are national leaders and — in many cases — pioneers in cardiovascular care. They have received recognition for clinical excellence for certain procedures, such as heart bypass and valve surgeries, and treatment of heart failure and heart attack patients. All have received recognitions for top-of-the-line patient care.
The Becker’s Hospital Review selected hospitals for inclusion based on national rankings and awards, including U.S. News & World Report rankings for cardiology and heart surgery, Truven Health Analytics’ cardiovascular hospital rankings, CareChex rankings for cardiac care, Blue Distinction Centers for Cardiac Care, star ratings from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, Healthgrades cardiology awards and Magnet designation.
Becker’s Hospital Review has published a version of this list annually since 2010. The full list features individual profiles of all 100 organizations and can be found at http://www.beckershospitalreview.com/lists/100-hospitals-with-great-heart-programs-2016.html.
The list is not an endorsement of included hospitals, health systems or associated healthcare providers, and organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list. Hospitals are presented in alphabetical order.
