Chest Pain Protocols 

Is it heartburn—or a heart attack? A fast answer to that question could save your life. If you feel chest pain, our emergency department provides prompt care. Special protocols and testing help our team quickly diagnose whether a patient is experiencing a heart attack.


Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization helps doctors evaluate how well the heart is functioning and whether there are blockages in the arteries. During the procedure, physicians insert a very thin, flexible tube into a major artery and navigate it to the arteries around the heart. Using advanced imaging technology, doctors can see whether there is plaque build-up in the heart’s vessels. If blockages exist, surgeons use treatments such as angioplasty or stent placements to restore better blood flow. Since cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure, most patients feel better within hours and some can go home the same day.


Diagnostic Imaging

Our hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that can produce clear, detailed views of the human heart and help doctors detect heart disease with pinpoint accuracy.
