  • Good news for cardiac patients - Winthrop has been ranked among the best in the State for coronary artery bypass surgery, according to recently released statistics by the New York State Department of Health on risk-adjusted mortality rates for the years 1997-1999.

    Out of the 33 hospitals ranked statewide in the Department of Health's report, Winthrop ranked #2 in the state and #1 in the downstate region for having the lowest risk-adjusted mortality rate for coronary artery bypass surgery. In fact, Winthrop earned the prestigious two'star ranking, indicating that the Hospital's risk-adjusted mortality rate of 1.21 for the three-year period was significantly lower than the statewide average of 2.20.

    The statistics clearly indicate that Winthrop's highly skilled cardiac surgeons in the Institute for Heart Care are effectively providing care to the most critically ill patients.

    "Not only has our world-class heart surgery program been recognized for its excellence, but also for the dedication and expertise of our outstanding team in the Institute for Heart Care," said Daniel P. Walsh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Winthrop. "These statistics verify that we have one of the top programs around."
