Exclusive and highest rating considered the gold standard for patient care outcomes

August 12, 2022 —  Atrium Health Pineville has earned a distinguished three-star rating – the highest possible designation – from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) for its patient care and outcomes in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedures. The rating places Atrium Health Pineville’s heart bypass surgery program in the top 20% of programs in the United States and Canada.   

 CABG is the most common type of heart surgery, with 340,000 cases in the U.S. each year. The surgery is performed to bypass blocked coronary arteries and restore blood flow to the heart, often to save the life of a person following a heart attack.     

“This rating is a tribute to our strong partnership with Atrium Health’s Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute and the intentional focus of the many teammates and medical staff that support the care of cardiac patients across Atrium Health Pineville,” said Alicia R. Campbell, vice president and facility executive at Atrium Health Pineville. “It signifies our leadership and consistent focus on quality to ensure patients reach necessary milestones for the best possible outcomes. It also lets patients in the greater Charlotte and South Carolina regions know they can stay close to home for the best cardiac surgery care.”
