Susan, who had a valve replacement, and Michael Cortelli, MD, chief, Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute
National Heart Leader | Moving Health Forward
Susan, who had a valve replacement, knows not all heart surgery is equal.
She trusts Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute, a Florida leader in heart surgery that consistently ranks among the elite programs in the United States and Canada.
For more than 10 years, Memorial has achieved high ratings for patient care and clinical outcomes from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS), one of the most sophisticated and highly regarded overall measures of quality in healthcare.
In the current analysis of national data covering the period ending December 2019, Memorial earned the highest STS 3-star rating for aortic valve replacement
(AVR) surgery and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery.
“I prayed that I would be surrounded by a super team of doctors and nurses, and I had just that,” Susan said. “I’m grateful for the excellent service and care Memorial provided.”
