Two CHI Hospitals Honored for Cardiovascular Care

Two CHI hospitals – St. Joseph Medical Center, Reading, PA, and Nebraska Heart Institute & Heart Hospital, Lincoln, NE – are on the List of the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in the U.S. compiled by Thomson Reuters. An annual study, now in its 13th year, identifies the 50 U.S. hospitals that achieve the best outcomes for cardiovascular inpatients, as well as efficiency in operations. In general, hospitals on the list achieve better risk-adjusted survival rates, lower complications indices and fewer readmissions than their peer hospitals.
