CHEST PAIN ACCREDITATION AND STROKE CERTIFICATION
We have the only Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI in East Pasco, which means we are always ready and able to diagnose and treat cardiac emergencies. All of our physicians and nurses are trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and work closely with our cardiac team to rapidly identify and effectively treat patients who are having a heart attack.
Our ER is a recognized Center for Primary Stroke and has earned the Joint Commission’s Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke. Achievement of this certification recognizes stroke centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care and it lets our community know that we provide quality care that effectively meets the needs of stroke patients.
FAST TRACK PROGRAM
Even though not all people who come to our emergency department have life-threatening conditions, they still deserve quick, effective treatment. That’s why we’ve established our Fast Track Program to ensure that patients with serious, but non-life threatening conditions, are treated as quickly as possible. With added exam rooms we have streamlined our registration and triage process, which can now take place in as little as two minutes. In addition, we strive to have an emergency physician see all of our patients within minutes of their arrival.
