American College of Surgeons Recognizes Mayo Hospitals for Exemplary Outcomes
Date:3/13/2009

r more of the five areas listed above. Risk-adjusted data from the June 2008 ACS NSQIP Semiannual Report were used to determine which hospitals demonstrated exemplary outcomes.

ACS NSQIP is the only nationally validated quality improvement program that measures and enhances the care of surgical patients. This program measures actual surgical results 30 days postoperatively as well as risk adjusts patient characteristics to compensate for differences among patient populations and acuity levels. The goal of ACS NSQIP is to reduce surgical morbidity (infection or illness related to a surgical procedure) and surgical mortality (death related to a surgical procedure) and to provide a firm foundation for surgeons to apply what is known as the "best scientific evidence" to the practice of surgery. When adverse effects from surgical procedures are reduced and/or eliminated, a reduction in health care costs follows, according to the program. ACS NSQIP, a major program of the American College of Surgeons, is used in more than 225 hospitals.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., performs more than 52,000 surgical procedures at its two hospitals each year, ranging from common to highly complex, minimally invasive, and robotic procedures. Mayo Clinic's staff in Minnesota includes more than 1,700 physicians representing virtually every subspecialty of medicine, providing care for more than 300,000 adults, infants, and children each year. For those requiring surgery, a team of more than 400 surgeons, anesthesiologists, and pathologists lead collaborative teams to ensure the best possible outcomes.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is a scientific and educational organization of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to raise the standards of surgical practice and to improve the care of the surgical patient. The ACS, with more than 74,000 members, is the largest organization of surgeons in the world.
