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.
