Chest Pain Center
About Our Chest Pain Center
Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the United States. 600,000 people die annually of heart disease. More than five million Americans visit hospitals each year with chest pain.
Riverview Medical Center’s Chest Pain Center offers aggressive and preventive treatment plans to patients with acute coronary syndromes. We ensure a consistency in our approach that involves a collaboration of specialties including physicians and health care professionals from our cardiology, radiology, laboratory, pharmacy, cardiac catheterization, nursing and emergency departments, as well as our
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel.
We are experts in:
- Integrating the emergency department with the local emergency medical system
- Assessing, diagnosing, and treating patients quickly
- Effectively treating patients with low risk for acute coronary syndrome and no assignable cause for their symptoms
- Ensuring our Chest Pain Center personnel are highly competent and trained
- Continually seeking to improve processes and procedures
- Supporting community educational programs that encourage prevention and symptom identification
One of the biggest advantages of Chest Pain Center accreditation is that physicians are able to expedite treatment during the critical early stages of a heart attack.
