America's best hospitals also great at heart attack survival rates

Filed under:

Top-ranked hospitals recently ranked at the top spots by a national magazine unsurprisingly rank at the top of the list when it comes to heart attack survival rates.

U.S. News and World Report ran a report recently ranking top hospitals in the nation, and a new analysis of that data showed that the 30-day mortality rate for heart attack patients was lower than at lower-ranked hospitals.

Oddly though, some unranked hospitals seemed to have the highest heart attack survival rates out of all hospitals while some top-ranked hospitals had worse survival rates. Weird!
