Thomson Reuters has released its annual study identifying the 100 U.S. hospitals that set the nation's benchmarks for inpatient cardiovascular services. Kettering Medical Center and Grandview Medical Center were the only Dayton-area hospitals recognized.

The study, 100 Top Hospitals: Cardiovascular Benchmarks, examined the performance of 971 hospitals by analyzing outcomes for patients with heart failure and heart attacks and for those who received coronary bypass surgery or percutaneous cardiovascular interventions such as angioplasties.

The study, in its 11th year, found that the 100 Top Hospitals cardiovascular winners have:

  • 17 percent lower mortality rates for heart attack patients.
  • 10 percent lower mortality rates for heart failure patients.
  • 27 percent lower mortality for bypass surgery patients.
  • 22 percent lower mortality following PCI.
  • Fewer post-operative complications: 99 percent of patients were complication-free.
  • Close to 12 percent shorter average hospital stay.
  • 12 percent lower cost per case.
  • Top performing hospitals perform over 50 percent more cardiac surgeries than peer hospitals.
