ST. GEORGE — Becker’s Hospital Review, a national health care review journal, listed Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George this week as tied for first place on its list of 53 hospitals with the lowest 30-day heart failure readmission rates in the nation.

The list was selected based on data taken from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Hospital Compare website and is from 2010-2013 (the most recent data available). Dixie Regional, Munson Medical Center (Michigan) and St. Francis (South Carolina) tied for the lowest rate of readmissions — 16.6 percent.
