Einstein Philadelphia Cited for Excellence in Cardiac Care

Nov 02 2022

The Department of Cardiology at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, now a part of Jefferson Health, has been named a top hospital for cardiac care, one of only a dozen in Pennsylvania and 100 across the country that received a 2023 Specialty Excellence Award from Healthgrades.

The hospitals in this ranking demonstrated excellent clinical outcomes for heart bypass surgery, coronary interventional procedures, heart attack treatment, heart failure treatment and heart valve surgery.

“This honor reflects the hard work, dedication, and compassionate care of our talented doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and support staff,” said Sumeet K. Mainigi, MD, Chair of Cardiology.

"Einstein has a rich history of providing outstanding cardiac care and this recognition is the result of a concerted effort over the last few years to bring high quality, state-of-the-art care to our community," Dr. Mainigi said. "We couldn't be more excited about this achievement."

Einstein Philadelphia is the only hospital in Philadelphia recognized as a HeartCARE Center of Excellence by the American College of Cardiology, Dr. Mainagi added. "It is also recognized as a top center for heart failure treatment and heart attack treatment by US News and World Report."

Louis Samuels, MD, Chief of Cardiac Surgery, echoed Dr. Mainigi’s pride in the recognition, and said “This noteworthy distinction reflects the Cardiac Surgery team’s commitment to technical excellence and perioperative care.”

Dr. Samuels added that Einstein Philadelphia also was recognized with the highest rating by the Society of Thoracic Surgery for coronary artery bypass grafting and received a Gold Seal by the Joint Commission for its Ventricular Assist Device Program.

Healthgrades provides information about physicians, hospitals and health care providers in a database designed to help consumers select physicians and healthcare facilities. The Clinical Excellence awards are intended to help patients make an informed choice about where to seek treatment.
