Heart Attack
Readmission Rates

UTMB defines hospital readmission as patient admission to a hospital within 30 days after being discharged from an earlier hospital stay.

UTMB’s 30-day all-cause readmission rate for patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), commonly referred to as a heart attack,has improved over the years. However, it is still higher than our Academic Medical Center Peers. In 2015, less than 14% of patients with an AMI came back to UTMB for problems related or unrelated to their heart attack.
