Low-Volume Cardiac Surgery Programs Face Tough Decisions

If you are a hospital executive with responsibility for a relatively low volume cardiac surgery service, you may be considering strategic alternatives to continuing this clinical program.  In your decision process, consider these important factors:

  • Low-volume services frequently struggle to produce high quality and competitive cost outcomes.

  • Nationally, CABG cases are declining and cardiac valve cases are shifting to higher-volume providers in many markets.

  • Low surgical volumes do not necessarily correlate directly with the volume of other cardiac procedures such as diagnostic cath, PCI, interventional vascular and CRM device implants.

  • Hospitals with and without cardiac surgery services can achieve "excellence" status and build thriving programs.  There are options.
