What it means to be an Accredited Chest Pain Center
An Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI means that a hospital has dedicated physicians in interventional cardiology and emergency medicine, trained in the rapid response and treatment of heart attack. This treatment focused method of health care has been proven to reduce damage to the heart muscle.
This accreditation is a coveted national seal of approval that verifies Genesis HealthCare System is the leader in cardiac diagnoses and interventions in the southeast Ohio area, offering the latest technology in the care and treatment of the cardiac patient.
What is required to receive the accreditation
Chest Pain Center Accreditation requires processes be in place to reduce time to treatment during the critical early stages of a heart attack, when treatments are most effective, and to monitor patients when it is not clear whether they are having a heart attack. Such observation helps ensure that a patient is neither sent home too early nor needlessly admitted.
Genesis has demonstrated its expertise and commitment to quality patient care by meeting or exceeding a wide set of stringent criteria and undergoing an onsite review by a team of accreditation review specialists.
