San Diego Union-Tribune

The state’s latest heart bypass report, which seeks to assess performance on the state’s largest single source of adult hospital admissions, says three local hospitals and two local surgeons had higher mortality or stroke rates than their peers statewide. The report, published by the Office of Statewide Health Planning & Development, rated 120 hospitals and 271 surgeons against the statewide average for coronary artery bypass graft surgeries performed in 2010.
