U.S. News & World Report Recognizes Atrium Medical Center’s Heart Care
U.S. News & World Report has recognized Atrium Medical Center as a high-performing hospital in the treatment of congestive heart failure, according to its latest rankings released Tuesday, July 30.
“Atrium Medical Center’s wide range of cardiac services helps ensure that local residents can receive quality heart care close to home,” said Dr. Keith Bricking, president of the Warren County hospital located in Middletown. “This recognition affirms the excellence that our compassionate team of providers, nurses, and clinical and support professionals bring to our hospital each and every day. I’m very proud of their dedication and commitment to our patients.”
U.S. News’ Best Hospitals procedure and condition ratings focus on individual procedures and conditions such as congestive heart failure rather than on broader specialties such as orthopedics and cardiology. The goal is to evaluate how well hospitals perform in each procedure or condition and not just with the most difficult cases, as with the specialty rankings, but with the full range of patients.
Atrium Medical Center (www.atriummedcenter.org) is a full-service hospital and Level III Trauma Center located conveniently along the Interstate 75 corridor at exit 32, One Medical Center Drive in Middletown, between Cincinnati and Dayton. The hospital employs more than 1,500 people in full-time, part-time and on-call positions. Atrium is operated by Dayton-based nonprofit Premier Health.
