St. Mark's Hospital - November 01, 2016

On November 4, 2016, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) designated the cardiovascular surgery team at St. Mark’s Hospital as achieving a 3-Star outcomes rating for aortic valve replacement with coronary artery bypass graft (AVR+CABG), the highest rating available. Less than ten percent of all cardiovascular surgical programs in the United States have this designation.

Kudos! to the leadership and skill of our cardiovascular surgeons, Dr. Shreekanth V. Karwande, Dr. David G. Affleck, and Dr. J. Kent Thorne, and to the surgical teams that they lead.
