3 Nancy Vish, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FACHE President and Chief Nursing Officer Since the inception of Baylor Jack and Jane Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital (BHVH) 11 years ago, we have taken a collaborative approach to providing quality patient care. Our employees and the physicians on our medical staff have worked seamlessly together to provide our patients with not only advanced heart and vascular treatments but tremendous service. In FY 2013, we were fortunate to collaborate with our colleagues in the heart surgery program at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas to form one cohesive heart and vascular team under the brand, Baylor Heart and Vascular Services (BHVS) at Dallas. Joining forces has not only benefitted our team members, but ultimately it is benefitting our patients and their families. American poet Mattie Stepanek once said, Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. We are proud to say in FY 13 our team accomplished some wonderful things. BHVS is honored to have achieved the highest rating for heart surgery according to The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Also, both Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas and Baylor Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital received Heart Failure Accreditation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care in FY12. We also worked together with the American Heart Association and other health care providers as part of the Caruth Initiative. This collaborative project, funded by a $3.5 million grant from the W.W. Caruth, Jr. Foundation, expedited care for heart attack patients in Dallas-Ft. Worth. In FY 13, we were honored to be named to Modern Healthcare s Best Places to Work in Healthcare list for a second consecutive year, receive a fourth straight Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Award and win the Beacon Award for Outstanding Intensive Care Nursing. These awards help affirm the dedication to our goals of clinical excellence, patient and family satisfaction, health care team satisfaction and fiscal responsibility to help provide a quality patient experience. As part of our continuing focus on education, BHVS at Dallas offers fellowships in cardiology, electrophysiology and a vascular surgery residency program that are fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Research remains a pillar of our organization. Investigation into the use of adult stem cells to improve heart function in patients with congestive heart failure and in treating heart attacks continues. Also, BHVS at Dallas remained among the highest enrollers nationwide in the CoreValve transcatheter aortic valve implantation clinical trial, and the Symplicity trial studying uncontrolled hypertension. FY 13 was an exciting year of accomplishment and expanded collaboration. Joining forces to create BHVS at Dallas has already proven to be a great benefit for our team members and our patients. We believe this new relationship enhances our ability to offer advanced heart and vascular treatments with a focus on quality and outstanding service for our patients and their families.

6 Baylor Health Care System Circle of Care Our Circle of Care encompasses our mission, vision, and priorities, and places our patients front and center. Our mission supports this patient-centered approach. We recognize that there are four key areas of excellence that must be in place to ensure that patients are our number one priority: people, quality, service and fiscal stewardship. What does this mean? It means that Baylor Health Care System supports and cares for patients as individuals. We promote a healing environment in which the members of the health care team work together as one, for the benefit of the patient. To do that, Baylor adopts best practices and industry standards that support and sustain a patient-centered culture. When these are put into place, we not only enhance patient safety and quality of care, we also increase our level of performance as a health care system. During the strategic planning process, Baylor Heart and Vascular Services at Dallas leadership uses the Circle of Care as a framework to identify the principal factors that determine success relative to competitors and sustainability for its key stakeholders.

14 Cardiovascular Surgical Procedures Baylor Heart and Vascular Services at Dallas offers advanced surgical procedures and the highly specialized care required for treatment of complex cardiovascular issues. This includes several specialized programs and Centers of Excellence for specific cardiovascular conditions such as valve disorders, arrhythmia care and heart failure issues. Coronary Artery Disease Treatments Clampless proximal coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) anastomosis surgeons on the medical staff of Baylor Dallas have pioneered methods and devices for making a proximal vein-to-aorta anastomosis without clamping the aorta. Clinical studies, some conducted at Baylor Dallas, have shown an association of this technique with fewer strokes in selected patients. Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting an alternative to traditional bypass surgery (CABG) that can eliminate the use of the heart-lung machine. Surgeons on the medical staff of Baylor Dallas have researched methods that allow them to sew the bypass onto the heart while it continues to beat. Off-pump surgery may reduce the risk of bleeding and mortality in selected patients. Endoscopic vessel harvesting for appropriate bypass patients, research conducted at Baylor Dallas has shown that harvesting a leg vessel endoscopically can virtually eliminate leg discomfort and infection, as well as decrease length of hospital stay and time to begin walking again. Intraoperative fluorescence angiography surgeons on the medical staff of Baylor Dallas have adopted this technique that measures blood flow to the heart during an operation. Left ventricular remodeling surgeons on the medical staff of Baylor Dallas have championed the use of an inflatable heart model to guide surgeons in remodeling the left ventricle in cases where a patient has experienced a heart attack that leaves them with a portion of the left ventricle thin and even ballooning outward (a left ventricular aneurysm). Transmyocardial laser revascularization treatment aimed at improving blood flow to areas of the heart that cannot be treated by angioplasty or other surgery. Surgeons on the medical staff of Baylor Dallas use a special carbon dioxide laser to create small channels in the heart muscle, improving blood flow in the heart.

16 Performance Report Performance Report FY 2013 Baylor Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital (BHVH) also monitors several other quality indicators in atrial fibrillation and percutaneous interventional cardiology. These diagnoses require several evidence-based measures to be in place to assure quality of care. The hospital s data is collected concurrently and reviewed daily. The hospital has exceeded national standards in these areas as well. BHVH also participates in preventive health measures through the American Heart Association. This program requires several indicators of preventive health to be monitored as part of secondary prevention of heart disease. The hospital has exceeded national averages in these areas. Metrics are incorporated into the pre-printed order sets that are utilized for patient care to assure that these elements of care are hardwired into our daily activities. BHVH leadership, clinicians and staff also routinely participate in process improvement projects through Baylor Health Care System s Achieving Best Care program and the STEEEP Academy. STEEEP focuses on process improvements through six main elements: STEEEP : Safe - avoids injuries to patients from care that is intended to help them Timely - reduces waits and delays for both those who receive care and those who give care Effective - based on scientific knowledge, extended to all likely to benefit, while avoiding underuse and overuse Equitable - provides consistent quality, without regard to personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, geographic location, and socioeconomic status Efficient - avoids waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas, and energy Patient centered - respects and responds to individual patient preferences, needs, and values, ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions QUALITY 16 BAYLOR HEART AND VASCULAR SERVICES AT DALLAS

National benchmarks were last published using a risk stratified rate in 2009 (included reported data). Rates are calculated by a risk score of 0-4 with 4 being the patient with the highest risk factors. Some procedures are reported as a combined rate as there is very little variance, and others are reported by a range as there is more variance. In the future, surgical site infection rates will be compared to a national standardized infection ratio (SIR) for benchmarking. We have identified a clustering of infections in both the carotid endarterectomies and pacemaker/icd procedures for this fiscal year and have completed a multi-disciplinary epidemiological investigation.
