  • National recognition. In 2009, OHVI's cardiothoracic surgery program received a prestigious "3 star" rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Only 11.7 percent of 960 eligible hospitals received the rating, which denotes the highest category of quality.
  • Dramatic improvements in treating AMI patients. At 2.06 percent, Sacred Heart's heart attack mortality rate is now among the very best in the country. Our mortality rate is roughly half that predicted for our population by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and about a quarter of what it was six years ago.
