In 2019, Arkansas Heart Hospital was awarded the prestigious Five-Star Overall Quality Hospital rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). We are proud to be honored with this distinction again in 2020, in addition to being named one of the top 22 patient-recommended hospitals in the nation.
“We are honored by these designations,” said Dr. Bruce Murphy, CEO of Arkansas Heart Hospital. “We strive to treat our patients like family from the moment they walk in the door. This distinction is not possible without the dedication, commitment and hard work of our staff and physicians. Every department, every employee is essential to our organization. Our mission is to provide extraordinary service, and this honor confirms that commitment.”
CMS provides the rankings for hospitals across the country. The figures to determine top patient-recommended hospitals come from CMS’ Hospital Compare website and represent HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) scores collected from April 2018 through March 2019. Arkansas Heart Hospital is the only Little Rock hospital to receive the Five-Star rating in both 2019 and 2020, and one of two hospitals in Arkansas listed in the top 22.
Arkansas Heart Hospital is dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and related diseases, and we strive to provide excellent care at each of our 30 clinics throughout the state. We are proud of the standard of excellence we uphold and honored to be recognized for it.
