Top 100 Cardiovascular Program


Deaconess Heart Services has earned recognition as one of the 100 Top cardiovascular programs nationwide. We are currently the only provider in the area to have earned this prestigious designation from Solucient (formerly named HCIA-Sachs).

What does this mean? It means that we provide quality heart care that is unsurpassed by any other provider in the area. You see, Solucient analyzes health care organizations across the country. They select the 100 hospitals that achieve the best clinical outcomes while delivering cost-effective care. These 100 hospitals are the benchmarks other programs use to improve their services.

Deaconess Heart Services has raised the bar for quality care. Now hospitals everywhere are working to be more like us.

In fact, if all heart hospitals were as effective as Deaconess is, the improvement would be dramatic. The Solucient study of Medicare heart patients found that if all U.S. hospitals performed at the level of the 100 Top hospitals:
  • Death rates would drop 15 to 18%.
  • Complication rates would decline 21 to 26%.
  • Patient medical costs would reduce an average of $415,000 per hospital.
  • Length of hospital stay would shorten an average of half a day.
When you come to our heart hospital within a hospital, rest assured that you will receive superior heart care.
