Cone Health Named a 2019 Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospital Award Winner
The data shows top hospitals provide better heart care to patients.
IBM Watson Health named Cone Health one of the 2019 50 best cardiovascular hospitals. Cone Health was also named a Watson Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital in 2018.
IBM Watson evaluates and ranks hospitals around the country on their performance on key measures of cardiovascular care. The 2019 study found that patients of the 50 best cardiovascular hospitals, such as Cone Health Heart and Vascular Center, receive measurably better care.
Winning hospitals had more heart patients survive, had fewer patients with complications, provided care at less cost per patient and had a higher 30-day survival rate than nonwinning hospitals.
