Time is heart muscle. Most cardiac teams begin treatment of their heart attack patients the minute they arrive at the ER door. At PinnacleHealth, your treatment beings the minute the EMS
crew learns you've chosen us
. PinnacleHealth trains and equips EMS crews with 12-lead EKG technology. While on your way to the hospital, your heart information is sent to our ER. When you arrive at our hospital, we're ready for you.
The result - we consistently treat patients faster than the ACC/AHA's* standard of 90 minutes from the ER door to opening your blocked artery, identified as Code STEMI
