Heart attack treatment

A heart attack occurs when blood flow to the heart becomes blocked. Immediate emergency care is necessary to restore blood flow and to prevent damage to the heart muscle.

At Lake City Medical Center, our cardiac care and ER staff collaborate to provide quick, lifesaving heart attack care.

We are an Accredited Chest Pain Center designated by the American College of Cardiology. This designation recognizes our focused, effective care to patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). ACS is a general term for any condition that suddenly blocks the heart's blood flow.

A stroke is a medical emergency caused by interrupted blood flow within the brain. Emergency treatment is critical to locate the blockage or rupture and restore blood flow.

Our emergency physicians provide fast, effective stroke treatment. We are recognized as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. This recognition shows our dedication to providing expert stroke care and following clinical best practices for positive patient outcomes.
