The cardiac experts at Dignity Health want your heart to keep beating strong for your loved ones. Early detection of heart problems means treatment can start earlier, so you'll live healthier longer.
For many individuals, the first sign of heart disease begins with a heart attack. Our complete 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’ll immediately 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, Chandler Regional’s average time has been less than 60 minutes.
Chandler Regional's commitment to help prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease is evident in our numerous accreditations.
American College of Cardiology Chest Pain Center v6 with Primary PCI Accreditation 2021-2023 (Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI)
Chandler has been awarded this designation having Primary PCI available 24/7 every day of the year. This means the hospital has a dedicated team made up of the cardiac catheterization (cath) lab staff and an interventional cardiologist to quickly respond to our patients.
Accredited Echocardiography Lab (MGMC renewed in 2021-2024 and CRMC this year of 2022-2025)
Earning IAC accreditation showcases physicians, patients and insurers that your facility has undergone a rigorous evaluation, has been found to be in compliance with industry standards and is committed to continuous quality improvement.
The goal of heart disease treatments include:
Lower the risk of blood clots from forming which can lead to heart attack
Prevent further complications from coronary heart disease
Reduce risk factors that contribute to the build-up of plaque in arteries
Relieve other symptoms such as shortness of breath and fatigue
If you are at high-risk for or have been diagnosed with heart disease, it is important to take action to prevent future problems with your heart. Your cardiologist or primary care doctor can write and sign a referral to the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department at Chandler Regional Medical Center.
