2 ON THE ST. JOSEPH MERCY HOSPITAL CAMPUS, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN Dear Colleague: Cardiovascular medicine has marked an important milestone in the battle against heart disease. The latest available data indicates heart disease is no longer the number one cause of death for people under 85. We at the celebrate this achievement but know there is a lot more work to do. I am proud to be a member of the remarkable cardiovascular team at SJMHS and the (MHVI). MHVI is among the largest cardiovascular disease centers in Michigan, as well as an accredited and recognized leader in cardiovascular medicine and surgery. SJMHS and MHVI are achieving award-winning clinical outcomes that reflect our commitment to excellence. I urge you to review this brochure. You will discover that our team has the knowledge, the latest technology and therapies, as well as the compassion, to support the treatment of your patients with risk for cardiovascular diseases. In addition, SJMHS and MHVI have the capacity and expert personnel to accommodate your referrals at any time. We are leaders in four critical areas of cardiovascular treatment: 1. Volume of procedures: with experience comes expertise 2. Quality clinical outcomes and commitment to their measurement 3. Breadth of capabilities: including advanced technology, subspecialized expertise and clinical research 4. Electronic health record and disease management We are committed to maintaining strong professional relationships and collaborating with physicians like you to continuously improve our practice and to insist on evidencebased therapies in the fight against cardiovascular disease. Sincerely, Stuart A. Winston, D.O., FACC Medical Director, MHVI St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, Ann Arbor, Michigan Since the 1950 s, MHVI has set the pace for excellence and innovation in cardiovascular medicine and surgery. The Institute, a cornerstone of the Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (SJMHS), has become a nationally-respected leader as a comprehensive center for diagnostic testing, medical treatment and surgical intervention.

4 Interventional Procedures Overview SJMHS state-of-the-art Imaging Center and its expanding capabilities in cardiac and vascular imaging help provide extraordinary cardiovascular diagnostic and interventional care. I n t e r v e n t i o n a l P R O C E D U R E S MHVI leverages the most innovative technology to achieve a minimally invasive approach to interventional cardiology and vascular medicine. Referring physicians and their patients benefit from our commitment to imaging excellence: MHVI was the first in southeastern Michigan to offer the digital Philips Flat Detector for the highest resolution in cardiac and vascular imaging in health care today. Dedicated cardiac MRI protocols and multi-slice cardiac CT enhances the understanding of cardiac disease and its early detection. Leading-edge technology yields more accurate and detailed information for making complex clinical decisions.

7 P a t i e n t S a t i s f a c t i o n & C l i n i c a l T r i a l s Patient Satisfaction & Clinical Trials Exceeding Expectations Two excellent measures of quality are: How patients perceive the quality of care The opinions of referring physicians like you Patient Satisfaction SJMHS cardiovascular units consistently scored exceptionally high marks in a 2005 patient satisfaction survey SJMHS Patient Satisfaction Survey MHVI is a leader in cardiac care 97% MHVI provides the highest quality care 97% Overall, I am impressed with MHVI 97% Referring Physician Satisfaction MHVI is exceeding expectations of referring physicians. In 2005, MHVI cardiologists conducted a survey of referring primary care physicians to measure their satisfaction with the quality of communications and services provided by MHVI cardiologists and surgeons. Their feedback was very positive MHVI Referring Physician Satisfaction Survey MHVI is a leader in cardiac care 100% MHVI provides the highest quality care 100% Overall, I am impressed with MHVI 96% I m satisfied with patient care at MHVI 96% 100% max. 100% max. Our Philosophy: A Collaborative, Multidisciplinary Approach MHVI cardiovascular treatment plans are developed through a multidisciplinary approach and shared expertise, including the input of the referring physician. Depending on the patient s needs, sub-specialists discuss the case and develop an individualized cardiovascular treatment plan. Then, one cardiovascular specialist coordinates the patient s care with his or her primary care physician. This strategy eliminates the practice of passing patients from one specialist to the next. MHVI achieves the optimal quality care experience by emphasizing collaboration. Leadership in Clinical Trials & Research High volume and a reputation for visionary leadership in cardiovascular medicine allows MHVI to participate in many cutting-edge research studies. Because of our commitment to research, cardiac patients have access to the latest therapies and clinical knowledge. Our Institute has a proven track record in clinical studies and its specialists are respected for their research experience. MHVI provides patients the opportunity to participate in a number of select clinical trials. In 2005, the institute had ongoing studies in these specialty areas: Interventional cardiology Acute coronary syndrome Heart failure Diabetes & CAD Carotid artery stenting Electrophysiology Valve surgery Clinical trials and testing the latest therapies and technology are essential to achieving our primary objectives: The prevention of cardiovascular diseases Ensuring optimal quality of care for individuals with those diseases For detailed information about our current clinical trials, please visit 13

8 Q u a l i t y & A c c o m p l i s h m e n t s Quality & Accomplishments Focused on Improvement At MHVI, the quality of patient care is paramount. We have developed collaborative multidisciplinary teams that routinely review and respond to data to identify opportunities for improvement. Based on that analysis, we make changes to further improve processes of care delivery. MHVI benchmarks outcomes against other leading programs in the U.S. This enables us to explore ways to improve our clinical services and develop best practices. To maintain the superior quality of our programs and services, we voluntarily submit data that is used for quality improvement and for reporting to regulatory agencies. These include: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Cardiovascular Consortium Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Registry Global Registry for Acute Coronary Syndrome Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Core Measures Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Quality Institute Trinity Health National Research Corporation Patient Satisfaction The data reflects the high standard of quality our patients can expect. We continue to update this data and make it available on our Web site: For your convenience, we ve provided a handy tear off reference card at the back of this brochure called: Leadership in Cardiovascular Medicine What Makes Us Remarkable? It highlights our leadership in volume, high-quality outcomes and other important benefits of referring patients to MHVI. The card also provides locations and phone numbers for each specialty. We encourage you to share this information with your patients. Accredited & Recognized MHVI is frequently recognized and honored as one of Michigan s premier cardiovascular treatment centers. Here are just a few of our most recent awards: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Cardiac Centers of Excellence Recognizing the quality of care provided by MHVI, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan awarded St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, Ann Arbor the BCBSM Cardiac Centers of Excellence designation. The award is based on the volume of services provided by MHVI and its physicians, the high quality of outcomes and low mortality. Solucient 100 Top Hospitals: Cardiovascular This award objectivity measures performance on key criteria at the nation s top performing acute-care hospitals Accredited Chest Pain Center In January 2005, the Society of Chest Pain Centers granted St. Joseph Mercy Hospital the designation of Accredited Chest Pain Center. This is only the third such designation in the state and the 79th in the nation. This designation recognizes the high quality and efficient care provided by the Emergency Medicine and Cardiology physicians at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. Hour Detroit Magazine Top Doc and Best Hospitals list Hour Magazine surveys health care professionals about: Their opinions of the best physicians Which hospitals they would choose for treatment for a loved one Over the last three years, survey participants named many of our MHVI physicians.
