Awards & Accreditations: Cardiac Surgery in NJ Report - 100% Survival Rate for CABG
Cardiac Report Card with 100% Survival Rate in Heart Bypass Surgery
Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has a perfect record for cardiac bypass graft (CABG) surgery with no deaths reported in the state’s latest report card released this week. The findings of the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services “Cardiac Surgery in New Jersey” report, which takes a look at the risk adjusted mortality rate for coronary artery bypass graft surgery in 2009, the most recent data available, shows that Englewood Hospital achieved a 100% survival rate. Englewood Hospital is one of only three hospitals in New Jersey with no CABG surgery deaths during the reported period.
Englewood Hospital has consistently scored high on the annual report card. Over a results period of nearly 12 years, the survival rate for isolated bypass procedures at the institution is over 99%. Even more astonishing is the fact that these procedures and these results are performed with one of the lowest blood transfusion rates in the nation.”
The report card includes data from 18 New Jersey hospitals and profiles information detailing mortality rates, average length of stay, and complications rates for patients who underwent bypass surgery. The report highlights that cardiac surgery death rates declined 9.2 percent when comparing 2008 to 2009 data, but among all complications, infection rates increased from 5.84 percent in 2008 to 6.49 percent in 2009.
