Becker’s Hospital Review has named Lankenau Medical Center, part of Main Line Health’s Lankenau Heart Institute, among its list of “100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Heart Programs.” The award recognizes hospitals leading the nation in cardiovascular care.
Lankenau Medical Center, is one of only five hospitals in the region able to perform transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), and is among the highest performing TAVR Centers in the nation. It is also heavily involved in clinical research, and its cardiac surgeons have performed more than 1,300 robotic heart bypass procedures—more than any hospital in the nation. Lankenau Medical Center has been named among Truven Health Analytics' 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals for the past eight consecutive years. U.S. News & World Report also recognized the hospital as high-performing for heart failure and heart bypass surgery in its common care ratings.
“Lankenau Medical Center is honored to be a part of this prestigious list,” said Phil Robinson, President, Lankenau Medical Center. “Our mission is to provide the best care and offer the most advanced options to our patients, our community, and throughout the region. We are proud of our clinical achievements and industry leadership in the area of cardiovascular disease, thanks to a tremendous team of physicians, nurses, employees and volunteers who provide the highest quality care to our patients every day.”
