Feb 29 2024

We are thrilled to announce that Mercy Health — Lourdes Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™, a prestigious accolade based on an independent quality analysis conducted by PINC AI™ in partnership with Fortune.

This esteemed recognition stems from a comprehensive evaluation of publicly available data to identify the top cardiovascular hospitals in the United States. The PINC AI™ 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™ program inspires hospital and health system leaders to elevate their performance and provide enhanced value to patients and communities. Organizations do not seek participation in the study, and award recipients do not pay to promote their well-deserved honor.

Expressing his pride, Mike Yungmann, president of Mercy Health – Kentucky, commended the exceptional care provided by the dedicated team at Lourdes Hospital.

“This acknowledgment underscores the commitment to excellence in lowering patient complications and readmission rates, reaffirming the mission to deliver high-quality, compassionate care to the community.”

The performance metrics of facilities listed in the PINC AI™ 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals™ program showcase remarkable outcomes.

They include:

  • Significant reductions in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) deaths.
  • Improved survival rates and fewer complications for patients undergoing various cardiovascular procedures.
  • Lower readmission rates and shorter average lengths of stay, contributing to enhanced patient experiences.
  • Substantial cost savings per patient case, reflecting operational efficiency and superior outcomes.

These outcomes translate into meaningful differences, potentially saving lives, reducing complications and significantly lowering inpatient costs. The dedication of hospital and health system leaders to enhancing the quality and value of cardiovascular care is paramount in addressing cardiovascular disease, a leading cause of mortality in the United States.

Leigh Anderson, Premier’s chief operating officer and leader of PINC AI™ emphasized the significance of hospitals tackling cardiovascular disease and commended Lourdes Hospital for achieving high-quality cardiovascular care.

“This achievement has directly led to improved patient outcomes, with fewer readmissions and complications, underscoring the hospital’s commitment to excellence and patient well-being.”
