The Lynn Heart & Vascular Institute was named one of the Top Hospitals with Great Cardiovascular Programs by Becker’s Hospital Review along with some of the most well-regarded hospitals and health systems in the United States; including The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, Duke University Medical Center and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. The Institute is also recognized as one of Florida’s leaders in the surgical and endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms and aortic dissection, and is among other leading-edge institutions using the innovative Trellis® System for treatment of deep vein thrombosis.

In 2017, the Institute received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Gold Plus Target Stroke Honor Roll Elite and is one of only four hospitals in Palm Beach County to be designated by the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) as a Comprehensive Stroke Center.
