Meriter Hospital has been recognized by Becker’s Hospital Reviews as one of the top hospitals for heart care in the nation.
Meriter was the only local hospital and one of four in the state to make the publication’s newly released list of “100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs.” Becker’s said the hospitals on its list have made progress in combatting heart disease through clinical research, high-quality care, state-of-the-art treatments and community outreach.
“Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the country, which is why heart health remains a top priority at Meriter,” said Dr. Matthew Wolff, Division Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at Meriter. “We are constantly striving to not only bring the very best care to those dealing with heart issues, but also to prevent heart disease before it starts through community education programs.”
Meriter offers an extensive array of cardiovascular services to patients in Madison and surrounding communities, including Meriter Women’s HeartCare, a comprehensive program designed by women for women.
Meriter is home to Wisconsin’s first accredited Chest Pain Center and was named to Thomson Reuters 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in 2012.
The other Wisconsin hospitals included on the Becker’s Hospital Reviews’ list are Aspirus Wausau Hospital, Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center and Bellin Hospital.
