    Memorial Hermann Among Nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals

    Four Memorial Hermann hospitals have been collectively named among the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in an annual national study conducted by Truven Health Analytics.™ Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital and Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital, have been named among the Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® five times and the 50 top Cardiovascular Hospitals seven times.

    The Truven study, now in its 17th year, singled out 50 hospitals that achieved superior clinical outcomes in this critical area of hospital care. Like the Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study, the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals survey uses rigorous processes to calculate and measure hospital service lines leverage industry-leading, risk-adjusted methodologies developed and maintained by Truven Health scientists over many years. The Truven Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study measures eight key performance areas: risk-adjusted mortality, risk-adjusted complications, core measures (a group of measures that assess process of care), percentage of coronary bypass patients with internal mammary artery use, 30-day mortality rates, 30-day readmission rates, severity-adjusted average length of stay, and wage- and severity-adjusted average cost. The study has been conducted annually since 1999.

    Chest Pain Center with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

    Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, formerly Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital, has received full accreditation with PCI from the Society of Chest Pain Centers, a patient-centered, nonprofit international organization focused on improving care for patients with heart disease. SCPC's goal is to significantly reduce the mortality rate of these patients by teaching the public to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a possible heart attack, reduce the time that it takes to receive treatment, and increase the accuracy and effectiveness of treatment. The Accredited Chest Pain Center's protocol-driven and systematic approach to patient management allows physicians to reduce time to treatment during the critical early stages of a heart attack, when treatments are most effective, and to better monitor patients when it is not clear whether or not they are having a coronary event. Such observation helps ensure that patients are neither sent home too early nor needlessly admitted.
