Nobody Treats Heart Attacks Faster
When it comes to treating a heart attack, every minute counts. That's why the expert heart teams at SSM Health Care have worked together to remove unnecessary steps and speed up care. And with more specialists at more area locations, you're sure to get this exceptional heart care at any of our hospitals.
National guidelines recommend that every qualified heart attack patient has his or her blocked arteries opened with balloon angioplasty in less than 90 minutes from time of arrival. Not only does our network meet that guideline, but our average door-to-balloon time is just 54 minutes - more than 30 minutes faster than the national standard. And our five hospital locations have achieved perfect "door-to-balloon" heart attack care for the last two years.
Exceptional heart attack care. That's SSM Health Care.
