MacNeal Hospital Named One of America's Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals

 
BERWYN, IL – MacNeal Hospital has been named one of the nation's top 50 cardiovascular hospitals by IBM Watson Health.
 
Cardiovascular patients at MacNeal and other top 50 hospitals experienced fewer complications, higher survival rates, shorter lengths of stay and lower costs.
 
IBM Watson Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™, formerly the Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals®, uses independent and objective research to analyze hospital performance. Organizations cannot apply or pay for the honor.
 
If all cardiovascular providers in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners (based on Medicare patients only), results industry-wide could amount to more than 10,300 additional lives saved and $1.8 billion saved, and 2,800 additional bypass and angioplasty patients could be complication-free.
 
MacNeal Hospital has dedicated powerful resources to treating cardiovascular disease. Leading-edge technology and facilities enable cardiovascular specialists to deliver a full spectrum of services.  MacNeal has been accredited a Chest Pain Center by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care and designated a Blue Distinction® Center for Cardiac Care by BlueCross BlueShield.
