A myocardial infarction (heart attack) occurs when one or more regions of the heart muscle experience a severe or prolonged lack of oxygen caused by blocked blood flow to the heart muscle. If you’re having a heart attack, we consistently rank in the top 1 percent in the nation for heart attack survival according to U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services "Hospital Compare" data. Our fast heart attack care program, MI Alert for Heart Attacks, saves lives. It consistently opens the arteries of people suffering from a heart attack in less than 90 minutes, the “gold standard” for heart attack care.
The faster you get care, the less damage is done to your heart. That’s why it’s so important to know the symptoms of a heart attack and call 9-1-1 if someone is experiencing them.
If our heart team determines you need bypass surgery, you’ll be in the right place. We are the fifth-largest heart program in Pennsylvania.
