Virginia Hospital Center Named One of the Nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals – Again

The prestigious Truven Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals® annual awards program has named Virginia Hospital Center as one of the highest-performing cardiovascular hospitals in the nation for the second year in a row.

Using independent public data and proprietary analytics, the newly released 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study recognizes cardiovascular hospitals that have clearly demonstrated the vision to develop long-term excellence in care, efficiency, and community value. The study objectively gauges leadership impact and organizational health by assessing the ability to drive consistent, outstanding performance versus the performance of industry peers.

As a 2015 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals award winner, our leadership team, medical staff, and employees — together as a team — have met national benchmarks for the highest balanced performance in the U.S. in terms of patient care, patient satisfaction, and financial operations.

So when you need cardiac care - or if you want advice and guidance on preventing cardiovascular disease - you should be sure that you're getting the very best. After all, you are trusting someone with your heart. Trust your heart to Virginia Hospital Center.

A Trusted Leader In Cardiac Care

Virginia Hospital Center pioneered the specialized treatment of heart disease in our area, establishing the first coronary care unit in the area-and the third in the entire nation-in 1964.

One of the area's first cardiac rehabilitation programs began at Virginia Hospital Center more than 20 years ago to help patients not only recover from heart disease, but also to achieve optimum health. The Hospital's cardiovascular services, led by physicians trained at the country's leading cardiac care institutions, consistently exceed national benchmark standards for patient outcomes and satisfaction.

These physicians and surgeons participate in ongoing research into the causes, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease. Virginia Hospital Center has invested in cutting-edge technology for diagnosis and treatment of virtually every adult cardiovascular disease or disorder. And in repeated third-party surveys, Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery patients give outstanding ratings to both the medical and surgical treatment and the compassionate care they receive from nurses, physicians and other caregivers.
