In 2010, the Heart Hospital of Austin, a campus of St. David’s Medical Center, was rated the No. 1 hospital in the state of Texas for overall cardiology services by HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent provider of hospital ratings. For six years in a row (2004-2009) HealthGrades gave it the No. 1 ranking for Overall Cardiac Services.
