Providence Open Heart Surgery Care Package

Also known as: Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery

Experience matters, and Providence has it. We perform more Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgeries than any other health system in Oregon. This translates into excellent outcomes for our patients as well as peace of mind for families.

Providence created a CABG Care Package to ensure consistent delivery of superior care, from a patient’s first visit through surgery, recovery and rehabilitation. The Care Package approach reflects the gold standard in cardiovascular care as defined by the Society for Thoracic Surgeons, American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.

Providence also knows that cardiac care is personal. That’s why we create a treatment plan tailored to each patient’s condition.

Unmatched patient support
Our focus is on helping you return to the life you love. Providence believes that when you understand your treatment plan and how to be an active participant in your recovery, you will obtain the best results from your bypass surgery. This will speed your recovery. We do this by providing you with important education during your entire course of care and pathway to recovery.

Our care team also includes Cardiac Nurse navigators, to help guide our patients through their episode of care. The cardiac nurse navigators help to assure cardiac surgery patients’ seamless and timely coordination of care. The navigators are a consistent point of contact, help to answer questions, reducing stress, and help to provide for a positive experience. Our goal is to improve cardiac surgery patient outcomes by reducing the fragmentation of care, and assuring our patients and their families receive necessary education, information, and resource materials around cardiac surgery.

Proven quality of care
Here’s why the Providence CABG Care Package is the best choice for you:

  • A better experience: Our patient satisfaction scores rank among the highest in the nation. That’s because our clinical care providers take a coordinated approach to your care with the goal of getting you home and back to the activities you enjoy.
  • The right care at the right time: Our heart surgeons and cardiologists work as a heart team to assure that you receive the treatment that is right for you and your condition.
  • A focus on getting you back to your life:  Your care doesn’t end with bypass surgery. At Providence, patients start physical therapy in the hospital and attend cardiac rehabilitation when they return home. We have rehab locations throughout Oregon, and we will help you find a convenient program near your home. All the while, your cardiac team will make sure you continue to heal and receive appropriate follow-up care.
