For Immediate Release
Chicago, IL (July 31, 2015)—Swedish Covenant Hospital was recently ranked as a high performing hospital for heart by-pass surgery by U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” Survey. The annual report surveyed nearly 5,000 hospitals nationwide and only 14% of those rated in this area received a high performing ranking.
“We are honored to earn this recognition as a high performing heart by-pass practice from U.S. News & World Report,” says Mark Newton, Swedish Covenant Hospital President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our mission is to exceed the expected standards of care and provide excellent safety and quality care and this recognition further illustrates our commitment to this goal and to providing excellent care to our patients and the community.”
A rating of high performing indicates that a hospital was significantly better than the national average in the heart by-pass surgery specialty. Over the next year, approximately 400,000 Americans will have bypass surgery. Each day approximately 90,000 Americans are admitted to the hospital, which further illustrates health care is a prominent issue. The U.S. News & World Report serves a source for patients and consumers when they are seeking the best places to receive treatment.
“We take pride in providing high quality care in all of our practice areas,” added Newton. “Our emphasis on delivering an exceptional patient experience is what sets Swedish Covenant Hospital apart.”
