MountainView Hospital has earned a distinguished three-star rating from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) for its patient care and outcomes in isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedures, also commonly known as heart bypass procedures.
The three-star rating, which denotes the highest category of quality, places MountainView Hospital among the elite for heart bypass surgery in the United States and Canada.
For isolated CABG procedures, only 10% of participants that were scored received a three-star rating. The latest analysis of data for CABG surgery covers a 1-year period, from January 2016 to December 2016, and 964 participants.
“MountainView Hospital takes great pride in the high-quality care we provide that has resulted in long-term positive results,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud of our capabilities to serve this community with the most advanced technology and outstanding staff.”
“At MountainView Hospital, we have built a true comprehensive heart program with a philosophy based on the highest quality standards,” said Dr. Michael Wood, MountainView’s Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery Associates Medical Director. “Our aim has been to build a comprehensive cardiovascular surgery program, and not just be a hospital that does cardiac surgery.”
