Three Missouri hospitals earn recognition for heart care


Becker’s Hospital Review has listed three Missouri hospitals in their 2014-15 list of the top 100 U.S. hospitals and health systems with great heart programs: Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University in St. Louis; Boone Hospital Center in Columbia; and Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City.

“The hospitals on this list lead the nation in cardiovascular and thoracic healthcare,” the report stated. “Many have pioneered groundbreaking procedures, and all have received recognition for top-of-the-line patient care.”

To determine the hospitals included on the list, the editorial team at Becker’s Hospital Review examined several reputable ranking and award agencies. Hospitals on the list cannot pay for inclusion. The list is not a ranking; organizations are presented in alphabetical order.

Becker’s Hospital Review is a publication of Becker’s Healthcare, a leading source of cutting-edge business and legal information for healthcare industry leaders.
