Outside of the Philadelphia hospitals, can anyone tell me which hospitals/medical centers are performing heart/lung surgery in Eastern PA? I am interested in facilities north of Philly. Thanks so much for any help you can offer.

I think Mercy Hospital in Scranton has a better reputation for cardiovascular surgeries than CMC, which is more highly-touted for its trauma and neonatal care services.
