Thoracic Surgery Service Line Receives the Excellence in Quality Award

The Excellence in Quality Award for this quarter was presented to the leadership of the Thoracic Surgery Service Line, which spans TICU, CTSU, and 3 & 5 Anderson.

Accepting on behalf of the team were Tasha Rose, Nurse Manager, and Jason Long, MD, Physician Service Leader. The team also received very strong support from Tracy Carroll, director of Heart and Vascular, and John Ikonomidis, MD, chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery. This leadership team has been reinvigorated, meeting regularly and working hard to meet our organizational quality goals. They have seen significant reductions in patient safety indicators, and have truly championed preventable hemorrhage and hematoma work across the medical center. Please congratulate them on their terrific work.
