Dallas hospital leads way to lower heart failure readmission rates

USA Today, July 9, 2009
A Medicare analysis found that Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas has the lowest heart failure readmission rate of any hospital in the country, 15.9%. Nationally, one of every four heart failure patients must be readmitted within 30 days of discharge. The effort not only spares patients the need to return to the hospital, it also saves Baylor money.
