MedStar Union Memorial is proud of its culture of excellence. We're serious about continuous improvement and delivering the safest, highest quality health care to you and your family.
Patients are our first priority in everything we do. You can expect the best medical treatment delivered with care, compassion, clear communication and responsive service. Every member of our cardiovascular team treats each patient with the understanding and support we would give to our own families.
As part of our ongoing commitment to patient care quality and safety, we use an advanced “Heart Team” approach which brings together cardiology, cardiac surgery, intensive care medicine, nursing, ancillary care and administration in a collaborative patient care model based on diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines. Focusing on the total patient’s needs in a collaborative way has led to significant improvement in patient satisfaction as well as outcomes.
Our unique alliance with Cleveland Clinic Heart and Vascular Institute has further enhanced our focus on quality and safety across all cardiovascular services and is reflected in the national and international recognition of many of our highly-trained cardiovascular specialists.
In fact, our quality efforts have been recognized by some of the industry's leading organizations, including the Delmarva Foundation. For the fifth consecutive year, MedStar Union Memorial received the prestigious Excellence Award for Quality Improvement from the Delmarva Foundation. We are the only hospital in Maryland to receive this award five times consecutively. To earn this award, MedStar Union Memorial achieved performance rates of 90 percent or above on National Quality Measures used to evaluate recommended treatments for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and infection following surgery.
MedStar Union Memorial Hospital earned its place in three healthcare categories to rank in the top 50 of the best hospitals in the nation, according to a survey published in U.S. News & World Report.
The 2010-11 America's Best Hospitals list identifies MedStar Union Memorial Hospital as 32nd in Orthopaedics, 38th in Heart and Heart Surgery and new to the list this year, Neurology and Neurosurgery, 47th.
