The Christ Hospital Named among “Great Cardiology Programs”

The Christ Hospital has been named one of the "70 Hospitals with Great Cardiology Programs" by Becker’s Hospital Review. The publication first identified hospitals that offer outstanding heart care. The editorial team then made final selections based on clinical accolades, quality care and contributions to the field of cardiology. The hospitals on the list, including The Christ Hospital, have been recognized for excellence in cardiology by reputable healthcare rating resources, such as U.S. News & World Report, the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.  As Greater Cincinnati’s Heart HospitalSM, we are not only providing leading-edge care with today’s best practices; our physicians are also dedicated to researching tomorrow’s solutions, said Dean Kereiakes, M.D., medical director of The Christ Hospital Heart and Vascular Center. Here are several treatments that The Christ Hospital has brought to Greater Cincinnati, enabling our neighbors to receive the best cardiac care in their hometown.

  • Through The Carl and Edyth Lindner Center for Research and Education at The Christ Hospital, physicians have participated in more than 1,200 clinical trials to date. As such, it is the only hospital between Cleveland and Atlanta to offer aortic valve replacement using the SAPIEN XT valve in patients who are considered to be at high risk or inoperable for traditional aortic valve replacement.
  • The Christ Hospital was first to bring multiple new technologies to Cincinnati and has performed four ―First-In-Man and five ― First in the U.S. procedures.
  • The Christ Hospital heart program is partnering with area hospitals to improve heart attack care through our Chest Pain Network as well as by placing automated external defibrillators in non-profit agencies through Project Heart ReStart and by forming a Heart Healthy Restaurant Partnership to promote heart-healthy dining options at restaurants throughout the Tristate.
  • The Christ Hospital was first in the community to provide first responders (emergency medical services) the ability to transmit electrocardiograms (EKG) from the field directly to the hospital so emergency teams could be better prepared to treat heart attacks upon arrival to the hospital. Due to the continued effort of the hospital in treatment of heart attacks, The Christ Hospital has received the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline® Bronze Quality Achievement Award. Hospitals that receive the Mission: Lifeline Bronze Performance Achievement Award have demonstrated for 90 consecutive days that at least 85 percent of eligible STEMI patients (without contraindications) are treated within specific time frames upon entering the hospital and discharged following the American Heart Association’s recommended treatment guidelines.
  • Our physicians have contributed extensively to peer-reviewed medical literature in cardiology with almost 1000 total publications. Since 2010, our physicians have contributed 60 full-length articles to medical literature, presented 45 scientific abstracts at international meetings, written two book chapters and published 2 textbooks.
  • The Carl H. & Edyth Lindner Heart Failure Treatment Center at The Christ Hospital is unique in the nation to be accredited by both The Joint Commission as well as Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium.
  • We are recently ranked among the Top 50 hospitals in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery by US News & World Report – we consistently rank as the most preferred hospital in Greater Cincinnati for heart care (National Research Corporation).
