St.Vincent Heart Center Named One of the Nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals

We’re happy to announce that Truven Health Analytics has once again designated St.Vincent Heart Center as one of the Nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals.

As a leading provider of cost-saving healthcare solutions, Truven Health Analytics ranked St.Vincent Heart Center in the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals based on factors including mortality rate, 30-day readmission rate, rate of complications, average cost and length of stay. Truven Health Analytics has been conducting this study since 1999, and it’s the fifth time St.Vincent Heart Center has been recognized with this award.

“We are proud to be honored again as a Truven Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital,” said Blake Dye, president of St.Vincent Heart Center. “This recognition captures what we strive for every day—keeping the quality of care provided to patients at the core of what we do.”

If all cardiovascular providers in the United States performed at the level of this year’s winners:

  • 8,600 additional lives could be saved
  • $1 billion could be saved
  • 3,200 additional bypass and angioplasty patients could be free of complications
