The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano has earned another three-star quality rating, the highest possible rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, for aortic valve replacement surgery and coronary bypass surgery. A scant 2.3 percent of cardiovascular programs nationwide receive a three-star ranking in both these categories, proving that The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano is among the top cardiovascular care facilities in the country.
Gathering data from almost five million surgical records over 90 percent of the cardiac surgery groups in the U.S., the Society of Thoracic Surgeons acknowledges The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano for its excellence in cardiovascular care. It is a tribute to the efforts of the physicians, nursing staff, and administration. As a not-for-profit organization, the 6,800 members of Society of Thoracic Surgeons are dedicated to ensuring the best possible outcomes for cardiovascular surgeries. Interspersed throughout 85 countries, the Society uses research and education to provide the highest quality patient care and their recognition is an honor.
“With this latest STS quality ranking, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano is one of 14 programs in the United States to hold a three-star ranking in all three categories,” says Mark Valentine, President of The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano. “This is a testament to the expertise of our healthcare team.”
Before The Heart Hospital Baylor opened in 2007, there was no other freestanding, full service cardiovascular health hospital in the region. It was created as a partnership between Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano and North Texas cardiovascular physicians and surgeons, and in less than a decade, the facility has frequently made heart health headlines.
In addition to its current rating, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano has earned a three-star rating in aortic valve replacement plus coronary bypass procedure and is ranked eighth in the country in heart valve surgeries. It is one of the largest heart surgery centers in the country and boasts the largest cardiothoracic surgery program in Texas.
With so much dedication and expertise in the staff at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, great things are expected in the near future.
