Quality and outcomes
For the seventh time in a row, our care teams at the Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital at North Shore University Hospital have placed among the best for heart surgery outcomes in New York.
Quality is something we take seriously at Northwell Health. Our care teams are 100 percent devoted to delivering world-class heart care, and others agree. It’s why third-party organizations like the New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) continually recognize our programs for cardiac excellence.
In fact, for the seventh consecutive time, the DOH report has recognized our programs as having the state’s best outcomes for certain types of open-heart surgery. In their analysis, they looked at risk-adjusted outcomes and survival rates for patients undergoing surgeries for isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), the repair or replacement of heart valves, or both.
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons has also developed a comprehensive quality rating system for cardiac surgery among hospitals across the country. In the current analysis of national data, several Northwell hospitals were awarded the highest tier of "Three Star," and several others follow with an also impressive “Two Star” rating for quality care.
See how our successful programs have been ranked by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. We're among the 15 percent of hospitals in the nation to receive a Three Star rating, which denotes the highest category of quality.
