50 top cardiovascular hospitals for 2022, ranked by IBM Watson Health

IBM Watson Health on Nov. 16 released its annual ranking of 50 top hospitals for cardiovascular care in collaboration with Fortune.

To compile its 2022 list, researchers analyzed federal data from Medicare cost reports, Hospital Compare and the Medicare Provider Analysis and Review. This year's analysis also included a patient experience measure based on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey, as reported in the CMS Hospital Compare data set. In total, 951 hospitals with cardiovascular service lines were included in the analysis. 

When compared to similar cardiovascular hospitals, facilities on this year's list performed better on various clinical, operational and financial benchmarks, including length of stay, patient complications and 30-day mortality.
