Becker's Healthcare named Hoag to the 2018 edition of the “100 hospitals and health systems with great heart programs.”
The hospitals named on this list are national leaders in cardiovascular healthcare and have invested in their cardiology and cardiovascular surgery programs. Many institutions pioneered groundbreaking procedures and remain on the forefront of heart care today. Others are high-volume centers that have exceeded national benchmarks for quality and survivorship. All have received recognition for delivering top-notch patient care, and many are also involved in clinical research and trials.
To develop this list, the Becker's Healthcare editorial team examined several reputable rankings and award agencies, including U.S. News & World Report rankings for cardiology and heart surgery, IBM Watson Health's cardiovascular hospital rankings, CareChex rankings for cardiac care, Blue Distinction Centers for cardiac care, and Society of Thoracic Surgeons star rankings.
Note: Hospitals do not pay and cannot pay for inclusion on this list. This list is not a ranking and organizations are presented in alphabetical order.
