We have achieved special designation as a Cardiac Arrest Center by Arizona Department of Health Services and have been named an accredited Chest Pain Center by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care.
Emergency Heart Care You Can Count On
For many individuals, the first sign of heart disease begins with a heart attack. Our comprehensive heart care program begins the second you enter our emergency room, where we quickly assess your condition and proceed with the appropriate cardiac diagnostic services.
If intervention is necessary, you will go to our cardiac cath lab for angioplasty, where a small balloon is placed and inflated to open blocked heart arteries. The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association recommends a less than 90 minute door-to-balloon time. Over the past year, Mercy Gilbert's average time has been less than 75 minutes.
