Redding hospital ranked among best for cardiac bypass
Red Bluff Daily News

Mercy Medical Center Redding has been named as one of the top scoring hospitals in the country for cardiac bypass surgery by Consumer Reports. Mercy is one of only five hospitals in California to have received the honor. More than 400 hospitals in 45 states were reviewed.

The report allows consumers to compare cardiac surgery groups that perform heart bypass surgery and to make more informed choices when it comes to their health care. The ratings are based on the gold standard in tracking hospital performance: data from patients’ medical records showing whether patients survived the procedure and how they fared on other important measures, including complications.
