The Christ Hospital has been named to the 2018 edition of Becker's Healthcare list of "100 hospitals and health systems with great heart programs.”

The hospitals named on this list are national leaders in cardiovascular healthcare and have invested in their cardiology and cardiovascular surgery programs. Many institutions pioneered ground-breaking procedures and remain on the forefront of heart care today. Others are high-volume centers that have exceeded national benchmarks for quality and survivorship. All have received recognition for delivering top-notch patient care, and many are also involved in clinical research and trials.

Physicians at The Christ Hospital Health Network have developed several new techniques in cardiovascular medicine over the past two decades, and the network's Carl H. & Edyth Lindner Heart Failure Treatment Center is the only dedicated heart failure program in the region. In 2018, CareChex ranked The Christ Hospital Health Network's Christ Hospital as one of the top 50 hospitals in the nation for heart failure treatment, and it received the American Heart Association's Mission: Lifeline Bronze Referring Quality Achievement Award for providing high-quality care to heart attack patients.

To develop this list, the Becker's Healthcare team examined several reputable rankings and award agencies, including U.S. News & World Report rankings for cardiology and heart surgery, IBM Watson Health's cardiovascular hospital rankings, CareChex rankings for cardiac care, Blue Distinction Centers for cardiac care, and Society of Thoracic Surgeons star rankings.
