Chest Pain Centers

Published On 07/11/2011

Methodist hospitals have Disease Specific Certification from The Joint Commission for AMI (heart attack). 

Our cardiac services include a wide variety of treatment options. We provide the latest in heart care technologies with knowledgeable experts and a network of service locations to provide optimal cardiac services for you and your family. 

Our patients benefit from a full-range of services, including both in and outpatient cardiac catheterizations, electrophysiology studies, minimally invasive heart surgery and open heart-surgery. 

In addition, Methodist North Hospital has achieved the designation of Accredited Chest Pain Center with Percutaneous Intervention (PCI). The accreditation, awarded by the Society of Chest Pain Centers, brings high-level cardiac care to our patients, which is vitally important when treating heart attacks. 

To receive this accreditation, Chest Pain Centers must demonstrate expertise in several key areas including: 

  • 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
  • Continually seeking to improve processes and ensuring staff competencies
