To the leaders of Cleveland Clinic’s Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute, it’s also an encapsulation of the extraordinary teamwork that’s made Cleveland Clinic home to the nation’s No. 1 program for cardiology and heart surgery for the past 22 years — including this year, according to U.S. News & World Report’s newly released “Best Hospitals” rankings for 2016-17.

“This video perfectly illustrates the countless contributions by a dizzying number of caregivers of all types and disciplines that go into a single successful hybrid procedure,” says Lars Svensson, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute. “That same ethic of intricately coordinated teamwork is the essence of our institute’s enduring success and leadership. I congratulate my institute colleagues for their unwavering commitment to excellence, and I thank my colleagues beyond Cleveland Clinic for your abiding confidence and collaboration.”
