The 50 top cardiovascular hospitals, per Fortune/PINC AI

Fortune and Premier's PINC AI, a healthcare improvement and technology company, named the top 50 cardiovascular hospitals.

Premier analyzed statistics from 937 short-term, acute, nonfederal hospitals across the nation that treat a broad range of cardiovascular patients, according to a March 15 company news release. Hospitals were segmented into community hospitals, and teaching hospitals with and without cardiovascular residency programs. They were evaluated on measures of clinical outcomes, efficiency and patient experience.

Those in the top 50 operated at lower cost and had better outcomes, had significantly higher inpatient survival rates, fewer patients with complications, lower readmission rates and spent up to $5,076 less in total costs per patient case. If all hospitals operated at the level of the top 50, there would be 7,600 fewer deaths due to heart disease, 6,700 fewer patients with complications and more than $1 billion saved each year, according to the analysis.
