Accredited Chest Pain Center
Our Chest Pain Center accreditation is evidence of our commitment to outstanding care. This designation means our Emergency Department and other first responders follow protocols for efficient and effective care for chest pain patients throughout our community.
The goal of the Chest Pain Center can be summed up in two words — recognition and speed. It is difficult to overstate the importance of swift identification of symptoms and administration of care when it come to heart attack. Accreditation as a Chest Pain Center means a facility follows evidence-based practices to provide fast, efficient care.
For us, accreditation was the culmination of one-and-a-half years of process examination and improvement achieved through collaboration with Butler County Emergency Dispatch (BCEMD) and Emergency Medical Services (BCEMS), our physicians, other facilities, national organizations and the communities we serve. Together, we created a regional system of care for heart attack patients that adheres to guidelines established by the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association.
