New ‘Top-Ranked Hospitals For Cardiology & Heart Surgery’ Announced
In case you missed it, U.S. News and World Reports recently published its annual top listing of top hospitals for cardiology and heart surgery.
As I reviewed the list, I noticed that the Cleveland Clinic retained its #1 position on this list. I could be wrong but I think this is the 18th consecutive year that the Cleveland Clinic held this spot. I also noticed that Mount Sinai Hospital broke into the top 10 for the first time since I began monitoring this list.
As we have discussed in the past, there are several factors that might impact your surgeon and hospital selection process. This is just one more piece of research that might help your evaluation.
