Project Description

Baylor Scott & White Health (BSWH) has developed a top quality, high performing cardiovascular program with their heart hospitals. The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano (THHBP) is a leader in cardiovascular care and committed to advancing the practice of cardiovascular medicine. They consistently deliver top quality care and have a three star rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons for both isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgery and aortic valve surgery. In 2017, the U.S. News & World Report ranked THHBP 16th in the nation for Cardiology & Heart Surgery.
