What is the cost of heart surgery to a hospital?
Heart surgeries are some of the most common operations performed in the U.S.¹ The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality have ranked heart valve procedures, percutaneous coronary angioplasty and coronary artery bypass grafts among the top eight of the most expensive surgeries a patient can have.²
Hospitals can charge heart patients anywhere from $30,000 to $200,000, depending on the procedure.³
According to Becker’s Hospital CFO Report, the majority of the costs to the hospital include staffing the technicians, nurses, anesthesiologists, surgeons, etc to perform the surgery. However, after labor costs, supply costs are the second largest part of a hospital’s budget. T for G, a business intelligence company, recorded that hospitals spend about 11-13% of their budget on medical equipment and devices. IV and diagnostics consume the majority of that budget, with cardiology not far behind.
Even though hospital budgets continue to tighten, they must keep a wide range of medical devices in stock for these common, expensive surgeries.
