Jan 9, 2013

WAUSAU, Wis. – Becker’s Hospital Review has recognized Aspirus Wausau Hospital in its recently released list of “100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs.”

The list recognizes outstanding hospitals for heart care in the United States. According to Becker’s, the 100 hospitals on the list have made strides to combat heart disease through innovative clinical research, high-quality care and state-of-the-art treatments. These hospitals also have extended their services beyond the confines of their facilities by educating their local communities about heart health, helping sharpen our country's focus on preventive care and population health.

Aspirus is one of four Wisconsin hospitals to be recognized by Becker’s for its heart care. The others include Bellin Hospital in Green Bay, Meriter Hospital in Madison, and Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee.

Becker’s selects its list based on clinical accolades, recognition for quality care and contributions to the fields of cardiology and cardiovascular surgery. These hospitals have been set apart for excellence in heart care and research by prominent and reputable health care sources and associations, including U.S. News & World Report, HealthGrades, Thomson Reuters and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
