Approximately 1.1 million people experience a heart-attack each year and in
42 percent of the cases, the attack is fatal.
The Heart and Vascular Institute and its Lex and Eileen Roulston’s Cardiac Decision Unit are never quiet. Patients arriving in emergency and life threatening situations are diagnosed and treated within minutes.
Upon arrival with symptoms and often unconscious, patients are diagnosed and treated for chest pain, angina, arrhythmias and congestive heart failure, among other cardiac conditions. The cardiac teams utilize focused and standardized American College of Cardiologists and American Heart Association approved protocols to provide “fast track” testing, evaluation and treatment that saves lives.
The Cardiac Decision Unit (CDU) is a 16-bed progressive care/telemetry unit with heart monitors in every room and The Heart and Vascular Institute at HealthPark Medical Center is one of only two interventional emergency centers and is the only accredited Chest pain Center in the area.
The latest in cardiac equipment and treatment is critical to saving lives here in our community. To support the Lex and Eileen Roulston Cardiac Excellence Fund, or another cardiac area that has touched you or your family, please call
