U.S. News & World Report Names Loyola a Top 20 Heart Hospital
Loyola offers a blend of experienced physicians and leading-edge technology.
Hospital Ranks in Top 50 for Nine Consecutive Years

In 2011, Loyola was named a top 20 hospital for cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report, a recognition of the high quality of our care. The listing marked the ninth year in a row Loyola has been in the top 50.

How did we earn this recognition? Through the combination of our experienced medical professionals, leading-edge technologies and compassionate care. We have long been known as innovators in groundbreaking cardiovascular care. For example:

  • Loyola was the first hospital in Illinois and remains one of the few nationwide to staff a Heart Attack Rapid Response Team (HARRT) that can stop a heart attack in its tracks 24/7.
  • We are the only heart center in Illinois that is part of the clinical trial of CoreValve®, a nonsurgical method for replacing aortic heart valves.
  • We were the first hospital in the state to use a robotic catheter navigation to treat atrial fibrillation.
  • As an academic medical center, Loyola is training the next generation of physician and nurse leaders in cardiovascular care.

U.S. News and World Report recognized three other specialties at Loyola as being in the top 50 Best Hospitals: Ear, nose and throat (35th); neurology and neurosurgery (39th); and urology (49th).

The magazine’s rankings are based on reputation, patient survival, patient safety and care-related factors.

The rankings are available at www.usnews.com/besthospitals and are featured in the U.S. News Best Hospitals guidebook.
