Chest Pain Center with PCI

Not all chest pain centers are the same.

Osceola Regional Medical Center is an Accredited Chest Pain Center (CPC) with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) by the American College of Cardiology. This means that we are a leader in restoring blood flow during a STEMI (a type of heart attack - the most common and dangerous), and faster than the average national STEMI times of 90 minutes - consistenly! Our multidisciplinary approach starts with our EMS providers sending the patient's heart vital information from the field directly to our Emergency Department through a technology in their ambulances.

Heart Attack

In a heart attack, time is muscle. The faster it can be diagnosed and treated, the better the chances of saving cardiac muscle and the patient's life. The accredited Chest Pain Center at Osceola Regional has a dedicated chest pain team with an organized approach to treating heart attacks. The hospital's highly trained and experienced medical professionals work together to offer patients fast and accurate care for chest pain.
