CONCORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio, August 25, 2014 - Lake Health has earned a coveted 3-star rating from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS), placing the health system in the top tier of heart surgery centers in the United States. A 3-star rating is the highest category of quality and designates that Lake Health's bypass surgery results are statistically better than the national mean. Only a few privileged hospitals nationwide received a 3-star rating from STS for surgeries performed in 2013.
Lake Health welcomes Jennifer Bradstreet, MD, as its new system medical director for the Lake Health Emergency Departments at West Medical Center, TriPoint Medical Center and the Madison Campus. She was appointed system medical director by Emergency Medicine Physicians (EMP), whom Lake Health contracts with to provide emergency medicine coverage for its three emergency departments.
"I am very pleased to be joining the team at Lake Health," said Dr. Bradstreet. "It is a fantastic independent health system with the resources to provide exceptional, comprehensive care to the local community. EMP truly shares Lake Health's values to provide the best in patient care."
