Ready for Any Heart or Vascular Emergency
If you think you are having a heart attack dial 911 immediately. Do not drive yourself or a family member to the hospital.
When a heart attack strikes, receiving fast, life-saving care is critical. Fairfield Medical Center knows that every second counts, so we work extensively with EMS and other hospitals in the area to ensure emergency cardiac patients are quickly evaluated, transported and treated. We are proud to have been recognized by the American Heart Association for meeting and often exceeding the speed of treatment standards for our collaboration with Hocking County EMS and Hocking Valley Community Hospital.
For patients arriving by EMS with a very serious type of heart attack called an ST-elevated heart attack (or
STEMI), treatment protocols are initiated during transport to the hospital and our STEMI team is alerted and ready to immediately take patients to the Cardiac Catheterization Lab for life saving treatment. Our door-to-intervention time for STEMI patients is consistently below the national average.
Emergency care right for today; convenient and comprehensive. Our ER care for cardiac emergencies is designed to deliver extreme access and the highest quality of emergency services and technology where and when you need them. It’s care that’s as intuitive as it is innovative and as convenient as it is comprehensive.
