At MedStar Heart Institute, our list of accreditations and awards is long. MedStar Washington Hospital Center, the headquarters for MedStar Heart, was the only hospital in the Washington metropolitan area to earn a top ranking for heart care from U.S.News & World Report for 2013-14. The Hospital Center was also one of only three in Washington, DC, to earn the Medicare Excellence Award from the Delmarva Foundation of the District of Columbia, a national nonprofit that works to improve health care standards.
Being the region's top hospital for cardiac care is important, but that's not what drives our physicians. They are motivated by the hope for a better tomorrow, where surgery is less invasive, medical technology provides more effective solutions and heart care patients live longer and fuller lives.
