TAMPA, Fla., March 15, 2023 ~ St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, Florida, has been named one of the nation's 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™ for the fifth time and third consecutive year according to an independent quality analysis provided by PINC AI™ and reported by Fortune. This is the only Tampa Bay-area hospital to make the list, having demonstrated significantly higher survival rates associated with cardiac care, with fewer readmissions and complications.

To select top performers, an objective, independent, quantitative research analysis was performed using publicly available data measuring cardiac care in the United States. The 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™ program winners had better results on indicators intended to measure clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, financial performance and patient experience. Compared to a peer group of non-winning cardiovascular hospitals, this year's winners had significantly higher inpatient survival rates (19.0 to 40.6% higher), fewer patients with complications (13.2 to 15.4% fewer complications), higher 30-day survival rates for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure (HF) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients (0.4 to 0.9 percentage points higher), lower 30-day readmission rates for AMI, HF, and CABG patients (0.5 to 1.0 percentage points lower), average lengths of stay (ALOS) varied between patient groups from 0.6 (AMI, HF, PCI) to 0.8 (CABG) shorter length of stay., $860 to $5,076 less in total costs per patient case (the smallest dollar amount difference was for HF, and the largest was for CABG). Patients also had a better experience at benchmark hospitals compared to peer hospitals with a top-box HCAHPS score of 75% versus 70%.
