Just two years after its founding, the Center for Heart and Vascular Care at Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center earned the highest possible rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons based on performance data for heart bypass surgery.*
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons is a nonprofit organization that represents some 6,400 surgeons, researchers, and allied health professionals worldwide. It’s an elite group that bases its ratings on more than 4.5 million surgical records.
They know what it takes to help their patients get healthy, happy, and active again.
Sunnyside is home to Kaiser Permanente Northwest Center for Heart and Vascular Care. We’re also Kaiser Permanente’s Regional Center for Adult Cancer Care, neurosurgery, and most nonemergency inpatient surgeries.
