TEMPLE - Scott & White Memorial Hospital was named one of the nation’s 50 top cardiovascular hospitals by Truven Health Analytics.

Scott & White is one of only two Texas hospitals named, and this is the 12th time it made the list since the study began in 1999.

Scott & White was judged in the category of teaching hospitals with cardiovascular residency programs.

St. David’s in Austin also made the list in the community hospital grouping.

The study, now in its 16th year, singled out 50 hospitals that achieved superior cardiovascular clinical outcomes.

The Truven Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study evaluates performance in key areas such as risk-adjusted mortality, 30-day mortality rates, severity-adjusted average length of stay and wage- and severity-adjusted average cost.
