Lenox Hill Hospital Ranks Among the Top 100 Cardiovascular Hospitals in the Nation

October 22, 2002

Lenox Hill Hospital has been named one of the 100 top cardiovascular hospitals in the nation by Solucient, a healthcare information and research company, which for the past several years has developed a study to identify the nation's outstanding cardiovascular hospitals and to set performance standards for care. Lenox Hill Hospital was the only Manhattan hospital among the top 100 cardiovascular hospitals listed in the study which appeared in the October 21st issue of Modern Healthcare.

According to the study, if all hospitals offering open-heart surgery and medical cardiology programs performed at the levels of the top 100, an additional 4,400 heart disease patients could survive each year, post-surgical infection rates would drop by 18%, and the average length of cardiac patients' hospital stays would be reduced by half a day and $880 million could be saved annually in U.S. health care costs.

Lenox Hill Hospital is a 652-bed community-based acute care hospital located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and is home to The Lenox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute of New York which offers a comprehensive approach to total cardiac and vascular care, providing diagnosis and treatment of simple and complex conditions, as well as rehabilitation and disease prevention.
