For the second year in a row,
Bridgeport Hospital has been

Solucient®, a leading independent
healthcare rating organization, analyzed America’s topperforming
hospitals and identified 100 from across the country
that are setting benchmark levels of performance for cardiovascular
services. Among these 100 hospitals are Mayo
Clinic Hospital, Dartmouth–Hitchcock Medical Center,
