Hospital also among top in the Nation for Overall Pulmonary Services and Stroke Treatment

VISALIA, Calif. - Oct. 30, 2018 - Amzeal -- Kaweah Delta is one of America's best 50 Best Hospitals™ for Cardiac Surgery and one of America's 100 Best Hospitals™ for Cardiac Care, according to a national study released this week by Healthgrades. Kaweah Delta is just one of a seven hospitals in California, and the only one in the Central Valley, to receive the distinction as one of America's 50 Best Hospitals™ in Cardiac Surgery. Additionally, it is one of only 10 hospitals in California, and the only one in the Central Valley, to be named one of America's 100 Best Hospitals for Overall Cardiac Care.

The achievement is part of findings released this week  in the Healthgrades 2019 Report to the Nation. The new report demonstrates how clinical performance differs dramatically between hospitals nationally, regionally and at the local level, and the impact that this variation has on health outcomes. For the 2019 Report to the Nation, Healthgrades compared Specialty Excellence Award Recipients as a group, to all other hospitals, as a group, and found from 2015-2017, patients treated at hospitals receiving the America's 100 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Care Award have, on average: 26.9% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award. Patients treated at hospitals which did not receive the America's 50 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Surgery Award are, on average: 2.04 times more likely to die than if they were treated at hospitals that did receive the award.*
