Stanford Hospital & Clinics is consistently ranked in US News World Report's Honor Roll of U.S. Hospitals and our cardiology and heart surgery programs are considered one of the top cardiac programs in the nation. Additionally, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) has recently developed a comprehensive rating system that allows for comparisons regarding the quality of cardiac surgery among hospitals across the country. Approximately 14 percent of hospitals receive the "3 star" rating, which denotes the highest category of quality. In the analysis of national data covering the period from July 2007 to June 2008, the heart surgery performance of Stanford Hospital & Clinics was found to lie in the highest quality tier, thereby receiving an STS 3 star rating.

Philosophy of Patient Care

Each year, more than 5,000 patients from around the world come to Stanford Hospital & Clinics to receive the most advanced care for cardiovascular diseases. We offer our interdisciplinary team approach to all our patients - whether they are from across the street or across the pond. We believe this approach offers patients the best possible outcomes through the most thorough clinical diagnosis and robust course of treatment possible from our arsenal of clinical and research solutions.

We further enhance our overall efforts on behalf of referring physicians and patients by making communication an important aspect of our patient care philosophy. Communication is something we take seriously in maintaining strong working relationships with physicians, patients, and their families.

To assist you further, our surgical liaison and patient care coordinators, as well as surgical staff are available to respond to inquiries.
