Procedure Volume Reports

Research shows that hospitals reaching recommended volume thresholds for certain types of procedures tend to have better outcomes. These recommended yearly minimums are based on research from the Leapfrog Group, an organization dedicated to increasing the safety, quality, and affordability of health care.

To serve as examples of our procedure volumes, we present two measures for cardiovascular procedures and surgical procedures.

Cardiovascular Procedures

The table below shows our procedure volumes for two types of cardiovascular procedures: aortic valve replacement and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair.
