St. John’s Regional Medical Center (SJRMC), a member of Dignity Health, is one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Care™ and Coronary Intervention™, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians, and health systems. 

“We are honored to be recognized by Healthgrades as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Care™ and Coronary Intervention™,” said Darren W. Lee, President and CEO of St. John’s Regional Medical Center and St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital. “These awards demonstrate our commitment to providing nationally-ranked cardiac care and advanced technologies to our community.”

Every year, Healthgrades evaluates the performance of nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions using Medicare data and outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 16 states. The new report demonstrates the importance of hospital quality to both hospital leaders and consumers.

“Now more than ever, consumers understand the importance of hospital quality and are starting to become more diligent when researching where they receive care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “When selecting a hospital, consumers can feel confident in America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Care™ and Coronary Intervention™ for their commitment to quality care and exceptional outcomes.”
