Texas Health Dallas Receives Prestigious Chest Pain Accreditation
Date:11/10/2009

DALLAS, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas is the first hospital in Dallas and one of a handful in the country to be named a Cycle III Chest Pain Center by the Society of Chest Pain Centers -- the highest accreditation for heart attack treatment.

"This honor means that Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas ranks among the best in the country for rapid recognition and collaborative treatment of heart attacks," said cardiologist Dr. John Harper, medical director of the hospital's Congestive Heart Failure Unit. "Our top clinicians have developed a program to better care for these patients. North Texans should be comforted to know that the country's best acute heart attack care can be found right here in Dallas."

Nationally, accreditation by the Society of Chest Pain Centers is linked to better patient outcomes and more lives saved, according to a 2008 study in the American Journal of Cardiology.

"We've worked on advancing the speed and accuracy at which heart attack patients are diagnosed and treated," said interventional cardiologist Dr. James Park, medical director of the hospital's cardiac catheterization laboratory. "From the time the 911 call is made, a series of steps takes place to care for heart attack patient, from a field assessment by emergency responders all the way to activation of our cardiac cath team at the hospital."

The chest pain accreditation recognizes Texas Health Dallas as a Cycle III Chest Pain Center with PCI. Percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI, is the most advanced surgical intervention for heart attack patients who do not respond to medications.
