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.
Accredited Chest Pain Center
Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care
To receive accreditation as a Chest Pain Center, Chandler Regional underwent a rigorous evaluation by the Society. A visiting team reviews the medical center's ability to assess, diagnose, and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack.
Chandler Regional met strict guidelines based upon the following:
- Reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment;
- Treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved; and
- Monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack to ensure they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital.
Designation as a Cardiac Arrest Center
Arizona Department of Health Services
Chandler Regional’s designation highlights our ability to provide comprehensive, leading-edge care to those experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest.
We had to meet the following criteria:
- Cardiac intervention capabilities, which includes a cardiac catheterization lab and access to an interventional cardiologist 24 hours a day, seven days a week;
- A therapeutic hypothermia method to cool patients for at least 24 hours after a cardiac event, which helps reduce the risk of brain damage; and
- Coordination with with local emergency medical personnel to provide specific lifesaving protocols before the patient arrives at the hospital.
