After an analysis of national data from all of 2012, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) awarded Memorial Hospital its highest possible rating of 3-Stars. To put that in perspective, this score is earned by only about 15% of all eligible hospitals.
STS has established a comprehensive rating system that compares the quality of heart surgery among hospitals across the county by using a combination of 11 measures of quality. Medical professionals widely regard the rating as the gold standard by which to evaluate heart surgery programs.
“The STS Database is the oldest and most established registry measuring quality in healthcare,” said Dr. Vasant Jayasankar of Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgical Associates, and the medical director of the Memorial Heart Center. “Patients needing heart surgery should ask their surgeon and the hospital if they participate in the STS database and what their results are.”
“The rating reflected in the STS data is the result of a team effort,” said Bobby McCullough, Memorial Hospital’s Chief Operating Officer. “Everyone involved in patient care – the cardiovascular team in the OR, the intensive care unit and other nursing units, the cardiac catheterization lab, the Memorial medical staff, the blood bank – all are part of the team that provides quality outcomes.”
