Bridgeport Hospital Named One of the Nation’s Top Cardiovascular Hospitals—Again!
Bridgeport Hospital Named One of the Nation’s Top Cardiovascular Hospitals—Again!

For the second year in a row, Bridgeport Hospital has been named one of America’s 100 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals®. And in 2006, we are the only hospital in Connecticut to achieve this honor! 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, Massachusetts General Hospital, Henry Ford Hospital and Bridgeport Hospital. According to the Solucient study, the 100 benchmark hospitals perform more procedures than non-winning hospitals, and have nearly 21 percent fewer deaths than expected for cardiac bypass patients than other hospitals of the same size. Bottom line: The study determined that people treated at the highest-rated hospitals, like Bridgeport Hospital, have fewer complications and return to everyday life faster than patients treated at lower-rated hospitals. Setting standards for faster recovery and fewer complications: We call it Caring for Your Life.
