Why Chest Pain Center accreditation matters

UHS Wilson Medical Center’s Chest Pain Center, the region’s only such facility accredited by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care, provides patients with the following life-saving benefits:

  • Close observation, with consistent monitoring of the patient’s heartbeat
  • Consultation with a cardiologist
  • A comfortable environment that encourages open and consistent communication with the cardiology team
  • Access to additional tests not available in a traditional emergency department, such as sophisticated lab workups and nuclear stress tests to uncover emerging heart conditions in need of emergency care
