OHH is one of 80 Press Ganey client facilities to receive this honor in 2010.
"We are proud partners of Oklahoma Heart Hospital,” noted Richard B. Siegrist Jr., Press Ganey CEO. “Oklahoma Heart Hospital continues to maintain a high level of patient satisfaction over the past three years. Their efforts benefit Oklahoma and lead to improved delivery of health care.”
“The Oklahoma Heart Hospital has taken great steps in the past year to maintain the highest quality of patient care and continue our rich tradition of patient satisfaction,” said Dr. John Harvey, Oklahoma Heart Hospital CEO/President. “It is an honor to win the Press Ganey Summit Award for the fourth straight year, but it is also a challenge that we cannot stop now. We must continue our commitment to serve the state of Oklahoma in the best ways possible.”

Cardiologists from Oklahoma Cardiovascular Associates partnered with Mercy Health Center to make the hospital a reality. In 2006, demand for cardiovascular services in the region prompted a $98 million expansion at the hospital.
