Methodist North Receives Chest Pain Center Status
Methodist North Hospital's Chest Pain Center recently received full accreditation from the national Society of Chest Pain Centers, a nonprofit group in Columbus, Ohio, focused on improving cardiac care.
The award is significant because Methodist North is the first hospital in the Methodist Healthcare system to gain such accreditation for its Chest Pain Center, according to a company statement. Methodist Healthcare - which serves Eastern Arkansas, West Tennessee and North Mississippi - operates seven hospitals, several rural health clinics and a home health agency.
In addition, Methodist North also has recently added new technology and protocols to help its cardiac patients, including HeartSTAT, an area in the emergency room where a designated set of procedures is used to care for cardiac patients.
