Our CHD surgery program earned consecutive three-star ratings from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) for patient care and outcomes from the years 2016 to 2020. This placed UPMC Children’s among the elite for CHD surgery in the U.S. and Canada.
The STS recently replaced the star rating system by recognition of observed risk-adjusted mortality relative to expected mortality.
The most recent data analysis included procedures performed from July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2020. For this window, UPMC Children’s overall non-risk adjusted mortality rate was 1.82%, compared to the overall mortality rate for all other North American institutions participating in the STS analysis standing at 2.67%.
The STS rating system is one of the most sophisticated and highly regarded overall measures of quality in health care, comparing the nationally benchmarked outcomes of cardiothoracic surgery programs in the United States and Canada.
