— (January 15, 2021) Zephyrhills, FL – AdventHealth Zephyrhills was named one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. This award signifies that AdventHealth Zephyrhills is in the top one percent of 4,542 U.S. hospitals offering heart care services.
“This is the fifth year in a row AdventHealth Zephyrhills has been named One of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care,” said Deborah Moore RN, MSN, RCIS, Director of Cardiovascular Services at AdventHealth Dade City and AdventHealth Zephyrhills . “Consistently earning this distinction year after year demonstrates the commitment of our staff and cardiologists to provide life-saving heart care to our community.”
According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of American women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year—approximately one woman every minute. What’s often thought of as a “man’s disease” strikes more women than men and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.
“With such strong prevalence of heart disease in women, we empower her to find the best cardiac care to ensure a better chance of beating the disease,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of The Women’s Choice Award. “We help women by conducting evidence-based research and by recognizing the hospitals that could one day save their lives.”
The methodology used to select AdventHealth Zephyrhills as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Heart Care is unique in that it evaluates:
- The number of cardiac/vascular services offered. Recognized hospitals must offer at least six of the following services: Cardiac Catheter Lab, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Cardiac Surgery, Carotid Stenting, Coronary Interventions, Electrophysiology, Vascular Interventions, Vascular Surgery and Coronary Intensive Care (CCU).
- 30-Day mortality and readmission rates for heart attack and failure
- Patient recommendation ratings on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) Survey
