Known for its exceptional heart surgery program, Missouri Baptist Medical Center continually ranks among the very top hospitals for cardiac surgery in the nation. In fact, we are one of only 24 heart surgery programs in the U.S. to receive the Society for Thoracic Surgeons' highest 3-star rating for both cardiac bypass surgery and aortic valve surgery in 2012. Our heart team of surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses have performed more than 18,000 heart surgeries since the program was established in 1984.
Research has shown that patients who have their cardiac surgery at surgical centers that perform a high volume of cardiac surgery have better outcomes than those patients who go to a low volume center. Missouri Baptist Medical Center is the highest volume non-academic cardiac surgery in Metro St. Louis. Our cardiac surgery programs outcomes exceed national benchmarks according to the Society of Thoracic Surgery (STS) data registry, the largest cardiac surgery registry in the world.
At Missouri Baptist you are assigned a dedicated team of cardiac surgeons (Meet our Surgeons) and cardiac nurses who only care for cardiac and thoracic patients. The specialization of our team allows our staff to have an in-depth knowledge of cardiac diseases and treatments, but the dedication of our team allows them to treat the patient, not the condition.
