Accredited Chest Pain Centers

NMC provides advanced care, close to home. The Chest Pain team at NMC has one primary goal: to ensure that patients get the treatment they need during the early stages of a heart attack. Our goal is to reduce the time from the patient's arrival at the emergency department to treatment – to avoid as much heart damage as possible.

Accredited Chest Pain Centers demonstrate expertise in
  • Integrating the emergency department with the local emergency medical system
  • Assessing, diagnosing and treating patients quickly
  • Effectively treating patients with low risk for acute coronary syndrome and no assignable cause for their symptoms
  • Continually seeking to improve processes and procedures
  • Ensuring Chest Pain Center personnel competency and training
  • Maintaining organizational structure and commitment
  • Having a functional design that promotes optimal patient care
  • Supporting community outreach programs that educate the public to promptly seek medical care if they display symptoms of a possible heart attack
