We're working on behalf of one of the first freestanding cardiology and cardiovascular hospitals built in the United States.  The 60-bed hospital is dedicated solely to heart-related medical needs for patients. They provide diagnosis and treatment, emergency heart care, cardiac catheterization, heart surgery and education. The hospital has received accreditation as a Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI from the Society of Chest Pain Centers for their care and treatment for patients who present symptoms of a heart attack. The hospital is also equipped with a full-service emergency department, as well as a bariatric surgery center. The hospital's small size means faster emergency intervention, resulting in more saved heart muscle, and more saved lives.
