The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services “Cardiac Surgery in New Jersey” report card has been released. It shows Englewood Hospital has a 100 percent survival rate for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Since 2000, Englewood Hospital’s Heart and Vascular Institute of New Jersey has successfully offered a range of non-surgical and minimally-invasive surgical options to cardiac surgery candidates. More than 80% of all cardiac surgeries performed at Englewood Hospital are performed without blood transfusions, using bloodless surgery techniques. Englewood Hospital is a leader in improving patient outcomes through the practice of bloodless medicine and surgery, which has been shown to reduce the risk of infection and improve survival after cardiac surgery, says a press release.
The report card used data from 2009, the most recent data available for its findings. It shows that Englewood Hospital achieved a 100% survival rate for that year.
