Two Sacramento hospitals are among the "50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals" selected by Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Truven Health Analytics.

Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, was among a group of 20 recognized U.S. teaching hospitals without cardiovascular residency programs.

Mercy General Hospital was among a list of 15 community hospitals recognized nationwide.

The study by Truven, formerly the health care business of Thomson Reuters, examined the performance of more than 1,000 hospitals by analyzing outcomes for patients with heart failure and heart attacks and for those who received coronary bypass surgery and coronary procedures such as angioplasties.

Winners were announced this week in Modern Healthcare magazine.
