The depth and breadth of services includes a cardiothoracic surgical team offering open heart surgery and other complex procedures in tandem with interventional cardiologists in a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room at SIH Memorial Hospital of Carbondale.
At SIH Prairie Heart Institute quality is more than a buzz word. It’s formal recognition from nationally respected governing bodies and peer organizations reflective of positive outcomes and survival rates. SIH Prairie Heart Institute reports patient outcomes to several third-party registries for cardiology and cardiac surgery procedures in an effort to not only document, but also continually improve the care we provide.”
This is reflected in the national honors we hold through the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology.
High Quality Care
SIH is committed to delivering high-quality heart care. This quality is based on a combination of highly skilled doctors, nurses, technologists and other health care providers; state-of-the-art facilities and technology; and a commitment to delivering the right care, to the right patient, at the right time.
Quality is a reflection of how well we take care of patients. And this is measured by recording and reviewing patient outcomes, which simply means the results of a treatment or surgery. We report our patient outcomes to a number of third-party registries for both cardiology and cardiac surgery procedures, sharing our data in an effort to not only document, but also continually improve the care we provide.
