Top Outcomes and Breakthrough Innovations

Every year, we closely monitor volumes and treatment outcomes to stay abreast of our progress and identify opportunities to improve. In the Outcomes and Innovation Report, we explore our broad range of specialties, and showcase how our outcomes and clinical innovators place us among the nation’s leaders. We publish our data annually across divisions, with a goal of serving as subject matter experts to external physicians.

In addition to achieving top outcomes across the broad spectrum of cardiovascular care, we are building a value-based care initiative that is improving patient satisfaction, controlling costs, and reducing retesting and readmission rates.

We’re also expanding one of the Southeast’s most comprehensive research programs, in part by playing leadership roles in national trials of devices such as the Valiant Mona LSA thoracic stent graft system.

When you refer patients to Sanger, they’ll benefit from seamless, patient-centered care that is coordinated across disciplines and locations.
