Abington Memorial Hospital Receives Chest Pain Center Accreditation

We are pleased to announce that Abington Hospital is now a fully Accredited Chest Pain Center, a distinction from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. This accreditation means that the Heart & Vascular Institute has achieved a higher level of expertise in dealing with patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack. There are standardized diagnostic and treatment protocols that provide an effective and efficient evaluation of patients who may be experiencing chest pain and other heart attack symptoms. Specifically, the Heart & Vascular Institute has met strict criteria by:

  • Reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment
  • Treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved
  • Monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack to ensure that they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital
