Heart Attack Care
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.
Englewood Health’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) has received the American Heart Association’s 2019 Mission: Lifeline® EMS Gold Plus Award for implementing quality improvement measures for the treatment of patients who experience life-threatening heart attacks.
Paramedics run diagnostic tests while you’re in transit to the hospital, sending that information to the Emergency Department team, who then alerts the interventional cardiology team of your pending arrival.
When needed, you will be taken directly to the cardiac catheterization lab. This team is on standby 24/7, ready to perform an emergency procedure to open the heart blockage.
