MARQUETTE- Marquette General Hospital has been named one of the nation's 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals by Thomson Reuters.
A. Gary Muller, MGH's president and Superior Health Partners president and chief executive officer, announced the ranking today in one of the hospital cardiac catheterization labs. For the 2011 rankings, the field was narrowed from 100 hospitals to 50.
"To be recognized nationally for our expert health care for the fifth year in a row is an honor to everyone at Marquette General," Muller said. "We are privileged to have an incredible team of physicians and staff at the Marquette General Heart Institute who provide nationally renowned cardiovascular care to patients throughout the Upper Peninsula. Most of all, this designation verifies that our patients do not need to leave the Upper Peninsula for heart care that is ranked among the best in the country."
