Congrats to Cardiac Surgery – 2017 Quality & Patient Safety Award Winners

From the moment a patient steps on campus until their last follow-up call, PAH is committed to making their experience as stress-free as possible. Still, no amount of hospitality can make up for how overwhelming a lengthy hospitalization can be. That’s where the PAH cardiovascular surgery team's focus on expediting the process without compromising quality, safety, and comfort come in.
