Chest Pain Center
Your heart is an important muscle in your body, and we like to say time is muscle when it comes to a heart attack. With expert care and training to rapidly diagnose and treat a heart attack, our team of experts at our nationally accredited Chest Pain Center at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center can keep your heart muscle working strong.
Chest Pain Center Accreditation comes from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC), an international non-profit organization that focuses on assisting facilities in their effort to create communities of excellence that bring together quality care, cost and patient satisfaction.
Hospitals that have received SCPC accreditation have achieved a higher level of expertise in dealing with patients who arrive in the Emergency Department with symptoms of a heart attack. With this accreditation, you can trust that our team will be diagnosing and treating your heart problem efficiently and effectively in a rapid but carefully crafted system that will be set in motion the second you come through our doors.
Our Accredited Chest Pain Center means we meet strict criteria aimed at:
Reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment
Treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved
Monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack to ensure that they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital
