Advanced heart care services
We have enhanced our cardiac care processes to meet or exceed strict national standards and have demonstrated expertise caring for patients with heart disease. As a result, our hospital is designated as an accredited Chest Pain Center. This means:
- We can treat heart attacks during the critical early stage, when treatment is most effective and potentially lifesaving.
- Our average time to get you treated once you arrive is 68 minutes, well below the national standard of 90 minutes.
- Our emergency care services include a pre-hospital 12-lead EKG system. It allows your heart activity to be sent to our teams while you are in transit to our hospital. Then we are equipped and staffed to treat you before you even arrive.
Cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath lab)
Our cardiac cath lab plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease as well as the prevention of strokes and heart attacks. Here, a cardiologist leads our team of registered nurses, respiratory therapists and cardiovascular technicians.
Patients are referred to the cath lab only by their internist or cardiologist.
Our cardiac cath lab program follows guidelines from the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC). We also report data on and standardize our program against the ACC CathPCI Registry and ICD Registry every quarter.

Our cardiac rehabilitation program helps those who are recovering from heart surgery or a heart event, such as a heart attack. It offers the environment you need to recover and reach your health maintenance goals. You will participate in supervised exercise as well as science-based educational activities. This will help strengthen your heart muscle while teaching you about ways to manage your risk factors, stress and overall heart health.
Your rehabilitative sessions will last roughly an hour and a half, typically occurring three times a week for twelve weeks.
Who can participate in cardiac rehab
All heart patients are invited to participate. For example, if you have experienced a heart attack, undergone surgery or are at risk for heart disease, you may benefit from our comprehensive program.
Joining cardiac rehab
Your physician must refer you to our cardiac rehabilitation program by letter or phone call. They will be kept informed about your progress through monthly reports and direct communication, as needed.
Cost of cardiac rehab
Most insurance companies, including Medicare, cover a large portion of the program. Should your insurance company request it, we can provide them with a letter and program services description. We recommend you confirm coverage with your insurance company prior to enrollment.
If a teen or adult suddenly collapses and is not breathing, you could save them by knowing this heart-smart version of a popular tune.
- Call 911.
- Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of "Stayin' Alive" — the perfect rhythm for hands-only CPR.
Continue compressions until help arrives. To avoid tiring quickly, lock your elbows and keep your arms straight and your shoulders down in a relaxed position (not up by your ears). Use your body weight, not your arms, to push. If another person is there, you can take turns if you need a rest.
Here are some great videos from the American Heart Association to help you learn hands-only CPR:
