The best hospitals for cardiology in 23 states: Healthgrades

Healthgrades recently released its rankings of the top hospitals for cardiology in 23 states.

To determine the rankings, 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 care ranking, each state must have more than seven hospitals that can be evaluated based on patient outcomes in the treatment of heart attack, heart failure, and coronary interventional procedures. States with between seven and 10 eligible hospitals will have three facilities ranked and states with 11 or more will have five facilities ranked. The full methodology can be found here
