Chest Pain Center
We are committed to ensuring timely diagnoses and delivering clinically proven care to patients who have arrhythmias, chest pain, heart failure and other heart conditions. To achieve this goal, we consistently meet or exceed stringent national standards and demonstrate a higher level of expertise when caring for patients with heart disease.

Specialized heart attack education and care
Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the U.S., and when a sudden cardiac arrest occurs, heart attack is a common cause. That is why we encourage you, your family members, friends, co-workers and others to join our heart care teams in their life-saving efforts.
Here’s what you can do:
- Learn about your own heart health. Take our free heart health risk assessment and learn more about your personal cardiovascular health.
- Learn hands-only CPR. With only two easy steps, hands-only CPR can more than double a person’s chances of survival following sudden cardiac arrest. This easier-to-remember method is as follows:
- Step one—Call 911
- Step two—Push hard and push fast in the center of the person’s chest at the rate of 100 compressions per minute.
- Learn to recognize heart attack symptoms. When you see these signs of a heart attack in men and women, call 911.

Who needs cardiac rehab
If you have had or do have any of the following, talk with your primary care physician or cardiologist about cardiac rehab:
- Coronary artery bypass graft
- Coronary artery disease
- Heart transplant
- Heart valve repair or replacement
- Myocardial infarction (MI)
- Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)
- Stable angina
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:
