Emergency Cardiac Care

Heart Attacks and Cardiac Emergencies 

The faster a heart attack is treated, the less damage to the heart and the better the outcome of your treatment.

Both Blanchard Valley Hospital and Bluffton Hospital are ready to care for you when you come to the Emergency Department. All Emergency Department physicians and nurses have received extensive education in critical cardiac care, which includes advanced cardiac life support.

Blanchard Valley Hospital Cardiac Team

Society of Chest Pain Centers logoDepending on the type and severity of the heart attack, the cardiac team takes patients from the emergency department directly to a catheterization lab to administer treatments to clear blocked arteries and restore blood and oxygen flow to damaged heart tissue. The Blanchard Valley HeartCare team and fully equipped cardiac catheterization suite is available 24 hours a day. Patients are rapidly evaluated and a course of treatment is begun.

Blanchard Valley Hospital is also a Level III Trauma Center and has achieved Cycle III Chest Pain Accreditation with PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) from the Society of Chest Pain Centers.

Cycle III accreditation with PCI is the highest level of certification possible. Receiving this accreditation means we are committed to the highest level of patient care and demonstrate superior management of heart attack victims. It also means we are skilled at reducing time to treatment in the early stages of a heart attack.
