The Mount Sinai Hospital Earns Highest Ratings in New York State Report on Coronary Angioplasty
Date:4/29/2010

Mount Sinai and Two of its Doctors Shown to Have Significantly Lower Mortality Rate than Statewide Average

New York, NY (Vocus) April 29, 2010 -- In a statewide study, The Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan – along with two of its doctors – has been singled out by the New York State Department of Health as the hospital with the most successful record in performing angioplasty, a technique used to clear blocked coronary arteries. This ranking demonstrates the unparalleled skills of the interventional cardiologist team and the truly exceptional quality of patient care that takes place daily at Mount Sinai.

In the report released on April 22, “Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI) in New York State 2005-2007,” the Department of Health provides statistics on deaths within 30 days following PCI, more commonly known as angioplasty. In the three-year period, 53 non-federal New York hospitals were performing the procedure, and only one of them – Mount Sinai – received a “double-star” rating for a risk-adjusted mortality rate significantly lower than the statewide rate in both emergency cases and overall cases.

Data collected by the New York State Department of Health show that Mount Sinai performed 13,030 PCIs from 2005 to 2007. The risk-adjusted mortality rate from PCI at Mount Sinai was 0.64 percent, the lowest in the state.

“Mount Sinai is the busiest Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory in the state and treats the most complex cases, which makes the low mortality rating even more important,” said Samin K. Sharma, MD, Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. “We are committed to providing the best patient care, and are proud to have achieved such a stellar rating in patient safety.”
