WINTHROP-UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL: AMERICA’S 100 BEST HOSPITAL AWARDS IN THREE SEPARATE CARDIAC AREAS FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR

Identified by Healthgrades as Among the Top Hospitals Nationally for Excellence in Overall Cardiac Care, Cardiac Surgery and Coronary Interventional Procedure Clinical Outcomes


Winthrop-University Hospital’s cardiac program today received multiple awards from Healthgrades, the leading provider of information to help consumers make an informed decision about a physician or hospital. The findings are part of American Hospital Quality Outcomes 2013: Healthgrades Report to the Nation, which evaluates the performance of approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide across nearly 30 of the most common conditions and procedures.

Patient outcomes are important to consumers making choices today about hospitals. According to new research conducted by Harris Interactive for Healthgrades, 86% of Americans in 27 top designated market areas agree they would be more likely to choose—or not choose—a hospital if they could learn ahead of time the mortality rates for a certain procedure.

Other notable Healthgrades recognitions that Winthrop has received include:
