WAUSAU - A local hospital's dedication to healthy hearts earns it a top notch award.

Aspirus Wausau Hospital was placed in Becker's Hospital Review list of "100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs."

Becker's Review chooses hospitals based on care and contributions to the heart field.


Cardiologists at Apisrus say active heart research programs combined with dedication to different aspects of heart disease are some of the keys to their success.

"I'm proud of, not only on the quality of the care we provide our patients but also in the fact that patients are satisfied with doctors, with nurses, with techs, with the facility. So it's a recognition to the whole team," said cardiologist Dr. German Larrain

Aspirus is one of four Wisconsin hopsitals recognized by Becker's for heart care.
