MACON, GA (Monday, January 21, 2013) – Becker's Hospital Review has recognized The Medical Center of Central Georgia in its recently released list of "100 Hospitals with Great Heart Programs."

The list recognizes outstanding hospitals for heart care in the United States. According to Becker's, the included hospitals have made strides to combat heart disease – the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States – through innovative clinical research, high-quality care and state-of-the-art treatments. These hospitals have also extended their services beyond the confines of their facilities by educating their local communities about heart health, helping sharpen our country's focus on preventive care and population health.
