Posted by on Dec 22, 2014 in Quality

Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento—a hospital in the Sutter Health Plus network—is the only Northern California medical center named on Truven Health Analytics’ 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals for 2015. This is the third year in a row the Sutter hospital has received this honor. It’s also the only California hospital to be honored under the “Teaching Hospitals Without Cardiovascular Residency Programs” category.

Truven Health Analytics, a leading, unbiased provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of health care, is the same organization that named Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals the past two years.

According to Truven, this year’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study provides key industry insights, including the fact that if all cardiovascular providers performed at the level of this year’s winners:

  • Nearly 9,500 additional lives could be saved.
  • Nearly 3,000 more bypass and angioplasty patients could be complication-free.
  • More than $1.1 billion could be saved.
