Swedish Cherry Hill named top hospital for heart surgery
June 27, 2014
In its first ever rating of hospitals for heart surgery, Consumer Reports has identified Swedish/Cherry Hill as one of the top hospitals in the country for heart surgery. The publication, using data from the independent Society of Thoracic Surgeons, surveyed 400 hospitals and gave Swedish Cherry Hill ‘Above Average’ ratings (the highest possible) for aortic valve replacement and cardiac bypass surgery.
Swedish Cherry Hill was the only hospital in Washington State to receive such a rating by Consumer Reports.
KOMO TV recently profiled the report and interviewed Swedish’s Glenn Barnhart, M.D., chief of cardiac surgery. See the news story here.
