The award recognizes Chandler Regional's commitment to ensuring heart failure patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines founded in the latest scientific evidence. The goal is speeding recovery and reducing hospital readmissions for heart failure patients.

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.
