Bon Secours St. Mary's Hospital and Memorial Regional Medical Center were recently named among the top hospitals in the nation, and the only two in Virginia, for inpatient cardiovascular services by Thomson Reuters, an industry leader in health care data. The Bon Secours hospitals are honored for superior clinical outcomes, a recognition based on a comprehensive review measuring key areas that include mortality, complications, readmission rates, length of stay and costs. The study, in its thirteenth year, singled out 50 top hospitals among hospitals that treat a broad spectrum of cardiology patients. The performance of the top 50 hospitals exceeds average outcomes indicated by: better risk-adjusted survival rates (23% fewer deaths for bypass surgeries); lower complication indices (40% lower rate of heart failure complications); fewer patients readmitted to the hospital after 30 days; shorter hospital visits and lower costs; and increased use of internal mammary artery (IMA) for coronary artery bypass surgeries. In addition to recognition from Thomson Reuters, HealthGrades recently recognized Memorial Regional Medical Center, ranking it Virginia’s number one Overall Cardiac Program. HealthGrades also named St. Mary’s Hospital as the number one Cardiac Surgery Program in Virginia.
