American College of Surgeons recognizes Mayo hospitals for exemplary outcomes
Date:3/13/2009

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) has recognized Mayo Clinic's Rochester Methodist and Saint Marys hospitals as two of the 26 ACS NSQIP participating hospitals in the United States that have achieved exemplary outcomes for surgical patient care. As a participant in ACS NSQIP, Mayo Clinic hospitals are required to track the outcomes of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures and collect data that directs patient safety and the quality of surgical care improvements. Mayo Clinic is the only facility in Minnesota and the only academic medical center in the five-state region to have received this recognition.

"Whether training our staff to manage the nuances of each of our patients or utilizing new technology in the operating room, everything we do is about improving outcomes for patients," says Robert Cima, M.D., vice chair for Quality and Safety in Mayo Clinic's Department of Surgery. "This recognition is important because it requires hospitals to track outcomes in five key clinical areas, and serves as another way for us drive quality improvement efforts and to be transparent, allowing patients to see how we're doing."

The ACS NSQIP recognition program commends a select group of hospitals for achieving exemplary outcome performances related to patient management in five clinical areas: DVT (deep vein thrombosis, thrombophlebitis and pulmonary embolism); cardiac incidents (cardiac arrest and myocardial infarction); respiratory incidents (unplanned intubation, ventilator dependence for more than 48 hours and pneumonia); SSI (surgical site infections superficial and deep incisional and organ-space SSIs); and urinary tract infection. The 26 hospitals that were commended attained exemplary results in two or 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.
