A random audit by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) was recently completed on Adena’s Cardiothoracic Surgery program, showing it meets or exceeds the national benchmarks for cardiothoracic surgery.

This places Adena’s program above 99 percent, ranking it among the Top 10 percent in the nation.

“We are extremely pleased with how well Adena’s Cardiothoracic Surgery program ranks among similar programs across the country,” said Adena’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. John Fortney.

Adena Health System has been participating with STS since starting its Cardiothoracic program in 2006.
