U-M Cardiovascular Center Best in State

The 2009 U.S. News and World Report's Best Hospitals report released today ranks the heart and heart surgery programs at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center as the best among Michigan hospitals. The specialty of heart and heart surgery's ranking rose by two spots from 18th last year to 16th this year. The CVC now leads the state as the highest ranked heart and heart surgery hospital in Michigan.

Other Michigan hospitals who ranked in heart surgery were Beaumont Hospital (21 down from 14 last year), Harper University Hospital (46) and Henry Ford Hospital (50). The rankings cover 170 hospitals in 16 adult specialties and the top 50 U.S. hospitals are listed.

We would like to thank and congratulate all the staff and faculty in the Cardiovascular Center who helped make this improvement possible as we continually strive to be the "best academic heart and vascular center in the world."
