OLATHE, KAN. (Oct. 3, 2016) – U.S. News and World Report rated Olathe Medical Center (OMC) as High Performing in Heart Failure treatment. A high performing rating indicates OMC is among the best in the country at treating heart failure.
U.S. News and World Report analyzes almost every hospital in the U.S. that admits patients for the most common conditions, like heart failure. Hospitals are rated based on multiple data categories, including patient survival, volume, and staffing. Of the 4,500 hospitals evaluated, only a small percentage earns the rating of high performing.
OMC continues to enhance its level of care for cardiology patients with heart failure. Recent examples of this include:
- Adding a cardiology nurse navigator to help patients understand their diagnosis and navigate through their treatment.
- Adding three cardiologists, bringing the total team of cardiologists to 13.
- Expanding the Kansas Cardiovascular Center with the addition of a Hybrid Electrophysiology Laboratory.
