The hospital, part of Ballad Health, recently was named a 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital by IBM Watson Health. This marks the fourth time HVMC has been recognized with the honor, formerly given under another name. Organizations do not apply for or pay for this recognition or pay to promote their award for top performance.
The Watson Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study uses 2016 and 2017 Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, 2017 Medicare cost reports (2016 if 2017 reports were not available) and U.S.Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare data published in the second quarter of 2018.
