The Society of Thoracic Surgeons 3 Star Rating

As a national leader in health care transparency and accountability, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons believes that the public has a right to know the quality of surgical outcomes. 

To further this goal, the Society has established the STS Public Reporting initiative, which allows participants in the STS National Database to voluntarily report their surgical outcomes to the public on the STS website, the Consumer Reports website, or both. 

The first public reporting scores and ratings were published in September 2010 on isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery data that were included in the ACSD. Since then, the initiative has grown to include isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) and combined AVR and CABG (AVR+CABG) from the ACSD, observed-to-expected operative mortality ratios for procedures in the CHSD, and lobectomy procedures in the GTSD.

Using this information, consumers can see how participating cardiac surgical groups compare with national benchmarks for overall performance, survival, complications, and other measures. Nebraska Medicine is proud to achieve a 3 Star rating for cardiac surgery.
