American College of Cardiology Recognizes Stormont Vail as Top Hospital
Stormont Vail Health has been recognized for our dedication to our cardiovascular patients by the American College of Cardiology in the “Best Hospitals” issue of U.S. News & World Report. Stormont Vail ranked second in Kansas and achieved the highest rating possible in four cardiac procedures or conditions: catheter percutaneous coronary intervention, Chest Pain-MI, left atrial appendage occlusion, and transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
This recognition would not be possible without the diligence and efforts of our Cardiology team. Thank you for continually going above and beyond to transform heart health, and congratulations! Take a moment to learn more about this prestigious achievement here.
