Heart and Vascular Services

Contact: (512) 942-4162

St. David's Georgetown Hospital is a nationally certified Chest Pain Center, allowing more rapid assessment and treatment for cardiovascular and stroke patients who come to the hospital Emergency Department. For individuals suffering from a heart attack or stroke, every moment is precious. The faster a patient receives treatment, the more heart muscle can be preserved and the better their chance for recovery.

The Society of Chest Pain Centers emphasizes that the accreditation is for St. David's Georgetown Hospital as a whole, not just for the Chest Pain Center in the hospital Emergency Department. An accredited Chest Pain Center "encompasses the entire facility much like a trauma center."

As part of the Chest Pain Center, St. David's Georgetown Hospital received new testing equipment for its Emergency Department that will allow physicians and staff to test heart blockages in the ER in roughly 20 minutes. This is a test that at one time took more than an hour. Using this point-of-care testing, patients are now more rapidly assessed and, therefore, more rapidly treated. The Chest Pain Center is designed to save time and save lives.
