As we have learned over the years, time is extremely important in the outcome of a heart attack.
The quicker a heart attack patient receives treatment, the better their chances are for a full recovery, hence the adage “time is muscle”.
Good Samaritan Regional Health Center provides a broad range of cardiac services from cardiac catheterizations, interventions and all the way up to off-pump open heart surgery.
Washington County Hospital has worked closely with Good Samaritan to care for heart attack patients and have made significant changes to help save lives and save muscle.
Good Samaritan Regional Health Center has recognized Washington County Hospital staff for their every increasing skill in treating heart attack patients.
At 12 p.m., on Thursday, February 19, Good Sam will be presenting a Heart Attack Care STEMI award to WCH.
