U.S. News & World Report Named CHI St. Vincent Infirmary Best Hospital in Arkansas for Cardiology & Heart Surgery


CHI St. Vincent Infirmary ranks first in cardiology and heart surgery among Arkansas hospitals according to U.S. News & World Report’s latest Best Regional Hospital rankings. In the 2020–21 Best Hospitals rankings, the Infirmary ranked as “High Performing” in care for heart failure, the highest rating awarded for that type of care.


“Our cardiologists and heart surgeons are constantly working to bring the highest standard of care to our patients here in Arkansas and that care reaches far beyond the Infirmary itself,” said Marcia Atkinson, president of the CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute. “I’m proud to say that the Heart Institute offers Arkansas’ largest and most diverse network of heart specialists across CHI St. Vincent’s four hospitals and more than 25 community locations.”


The CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute also continues to push the field of heart care forward in Arkansas by integrating advanced technologies like HeartFlow Analysis into their continuum of care, earning the gold standard in heart attack care from the American Heart Association and partnering with Pennsylvania-based Penn Medicine to accelerate heart surgery research into innovative new approaches.


U.S. News & World Report was based on independent analysis of multiple data categories, including patient outcomes, volume of high-risk patients, patient experience, nurse staffing and advanced clinical technologies.
