SMH One Of America's 50 Best Heart Hospitals

Coconut Telegraph


Sarasota Memorial Hospital was named among the 50 best heart hospitals in the nation by Truven Health Analytics. No other hospital in the Suncoast region made the 2017 list, which is based on how well the nation’s hospitals cared for Medicare patients with heart problems over a five-year period, from 2011 to 2015. According to Truven Health Analytics, if all hospitals performed at the level of Sarasota Memorial and the other top 50 award winners, more than 9,000 lives could be saved and more than 6,000 heart patients could be complication free. This year, Sarasota Memorial also was among just 2% of hospitals in the nation–and the only Florida hospital to receive the nation’s highest 5–Star rating for quality and safety from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid. It also has been repeatedly recognized among the nation’s best hospitals for multiple specialties by U.S. News & World Report and HealthGrades, two other hospital rating organizations, and just last week, received an “A” for patient safety and top spot among America’s safest hospitals in the national Leapfrog safety study.
