The top states, hospitals for cardiac surgery, per Healthgrades

Healthgrades released its rankings of the top hospitals for cardiac surgery; only six states met the requirements to have hospitals ranked in the speciality.

Healthgrades used Medicare patient outcome data from the CMS provider analysis and review for inpatient hospitals from 2020 through 2022. To be considered for a cardiac surgery ranking, each state needed more than seven hospitals to be evaluated based on patient outcomes for coronary artery bypass graft surgery and valve surgery. States with between seven and 10 eligible hospitals had three facilities ranked and states with 11 or more had five facilities ranked.
