Bristol Regional and Holston Valley Recognized For Exceptional Heart-Bypass Surgery Programs

Bristol Regional Medical Center and Holston Valley Medical Center are the only two surgical groups/hospitals in Tennessee to achieve a three star rating for exceptional heart-bypass surgery by a leading consumer magazine.

The publication teamed with the Society of Thoracic Surgeons to present ratings of heart-bypass surgical groups based on how their public data results compared with national standards. Each surgical program that made its data public was assigned a rating of one, two or three stars in 11 performance measures endorsed by the National Quality Forum.
