MAYWOOD, IL – Becker’s Hospital Review has named Loyola Medicine to its 2016 list of “100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Heart Programs."
Becker’s said hospitals on its list lead the nation in cardiovascular care. “Many have pioneered groundbreaking procedures and are still pioneering breakthroughs today,” Becker’s said. “All have received recognitions for top-of-the-line patient care.”
In developing the list, Becker's editorial team examined respected organizations that rank hospitals and award heart programs, including U.S. News & World Report’s top hospital rankings for cardiology and heart surgery; Truven Health Analytics' cardiovascular hospital rankings; CareChex rankings for cardiac care; Blue Cross Blue Shield Association’s Blue Distinction Centers for Cardiac Care; Society of Thoracic Surgeons’ star ratings; Healthgrades’ cardiology awards; and the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet designation for quality care and nursing excellence. Hospitals cannot pay to be included on the Becker’s list.
At Loyola Medicine’s Center for Heart & Vascular Medicine, a multidisciplinary team of cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists collaborate on patient care and treatment options, including leading-edge cardiac tests, screenings and non-invasive diagnostic options.
Becker’s Hospital Review is a monthly publication offering business and legal news and analysis about hospitals and health systems.
