Consumer Reports recently reviewed the heart surgery programs of more than 500 hospitals nationwide. The publication primarily uses data from The Society for Thoracic Surgeons (STS) along with information about patient experience, outcomes and certain hospital practices. They broke out the country in five regions and reviewed the coronary artery bypass surgery and aortic valve replacement surgery programs of hospitals in that area, Colorado being part of the West region.
Saint Joseph Hospital was among the 11 recognized in the West and the ONLY Colorado hospital on the list. This accomplishment is just another example of the talent and dedication to excellence of Saint Joe’s physicians, residents, nurses and all members of the team leading to the best patient care.
