STEMI (Heart Attack) Receiving Center

Working closely with local emergency medical service teams, we provide coordinated, rapid-response care to people with signs of the most severe heart attack, known as STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction). If intervention is required, we can immediately activate the cardiac catheterization team at Saint Joseph Hospital in Lexington, where patients can be transported via helicopter.

Prior to this program, it was a challenge to quickly get rural-area heart attack victims to a hospital with a cardiac catheterization lab. Now, we’ve drastically reduced the time from the first symptoms to treatment—saving many more lives in the process.

Ready the Second Stroke Strikes

When it comes to stroke, time lost is brain lost. We provide first-response treatment to stroke patients when rapid action and proper medications can help save lives and prevent long-term disability. Our team also coordinates immediate transfer to nearby Primary Stroke Centers for more comprehensive support, while continually seeking new, faster and more effective treatments to improve outcomes for our local communities.
