CH-M Cardiac Surgery Receives Top Rating from STS

We are very proud to share the news that Centegra Hospital-McHenry has received the highest three-star rating for cardiac surgery quality from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). Approximately 10 percent of hospitals nationwide receive the three-star rating, which denotes the highest category of quality.

The STS three-star rating system is the gold standard for cardiac surgery quality ratings and is highly regarded as the best way to compare cardiac surgery programs. The system is based on cardiac teams’ performance in terms of survival rates, the absence of complications and other key measures. By receiving three stars, our cardiac surgery program has been placed among the best programs in the nation.

Centegra Health System partners with physicians from Cardiac Surgery Associates, S.C., to provide patients a complete range of heart surgeries. This partnership has brought advanced cardiac care to McHenry County to ensure community members can receive the best care close to home.

Congratulations to our cardiac surgery team and to every Associate and Physician who provides outstanding clinical care to patients with heart disease. Our patients have the privilege of receiving compassionate, sophisticated treatment close to their homes. We can be proud of our advanced cardiac services and the exceptional care Centegra brings to the communities we serve.
