Kettering Health Main Campus was identified as one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™. An objective, independent, quantitative research analysis was performed to select top performers using publicly available data measuring cardiac care in the United States.
“Earning this designation for the fourth year in a row demonstrates our multidisciplinary approach to patient-focused heart care,” said Sharlet Briggs, president of Kettering Health Main Campus. “We are honored to be recognized as one of the country’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals as it reminds the community what exceptional care we provide to our patients.”
50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™ program performance
This year, the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™ program winners delivered better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. Compared to a peer group of non-winning cardiovascular hospitals, this year’s winners had:
- Significantly higher inpatient survival rates
- Fewer patients with complications
- Higher 30-day survival rates for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure (HF), and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients
- Lower 30-day readmission rates for AMI, HF, and CABG patients
- Shorter average lengths of stay
- Better patient experience scores
“Heart disease remains the leading cause of death for all Americans, resulting in nearly 700,000 deaths and $229 billion in added costs each year,” said Leigh Anderson, leader of PINC AI™.
“Given the life and death nature of this condition, patients and their loved ones need credible information to help them determine where to go for the best possible care. This objective, data-driven study proves that Kettering Health Main Campus excels across a range of core performance indicators, directly leading to significantly higher survival rates associated with cardiac care, with fewer readmissions and complications.”
