Becker's Hospitals With Great Heart Programs
Posted on October 28th, 2015
Oklahoma Heart Hospital has been named to the Becker's Hospital Review 2015-16 edition of "100 Hospitals and Health Systems With Great Heart Programs."
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 this year's list are national leaders when it comes to multiple aspects of 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. Through their comprehensive programs, they also support heart education and disease prevention efforts.
The Becker's Hospital Review selected hospitals for inclusion based on national rankings and awards from several institutions, including U.S. News & World Report rankings for cardiology and heart surgery, U.S. News' Common Care ratings for heart bypass surgery and heart failure, 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. This is the fourth year it has included 100 organizations.
