Accredited Chest Pain Center
Your well-being is always our primary concern, which is why we go above and beyond to provide the highest quality care possible. That’s reflected in our status as an accredited Cycle II Chest Pain Center with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).
Our patient care procedures exceed the rigid standards set by the national Society of Chest Pain Centers and Providers. What that means for you is more reliable identification of a coronary event and faster treatment during the critical early stages of a heart attack. It also ensures you aren’t sent home too soon nor are you admitted if you’re not experiencing a heart attack.
