Why choose us for your heart surgery?

Quality Outcomes

Our program has received the top three-star rating, meaning it performed above the national average, in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 issues of Consumer Reports magazine. Because of the three stars, three years running, Consumer Reports named us an "'all-star' heart surgery group." After skipping a year, Consumer Reports repeated the study, and in 2014 it gave CentraCare Heart & Vascular Center a top rating in heart bypass surgery, the only hospital in Minnesota to receive this honor.

Range of Services

Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Surgical consultation.
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG).
  • Valve repair and replacement.
  • Transmyocardial revascularization.

Follow-Up Care

CentraCare Heart &Vascular Center opened a new nine-bed Cardiovascular Thoracic Unit in 2012. This unit cares for post-open heart surgery patients after they leave the Intensive Care Unit.
