Heart Emergency & Trauma

In emergencies such as heart attack, a few minutes can make a big difference. Jefferson Health – Abington patients benefit from rapid, exceptional emergency care and cardiovascular expertise at both of our hospitals: Jefferson Abington Hospital and Jefferson Lansdale Hospital.

Our heart team is available 24/7 to perform the latest emergency treatments.

Finest Emergency Locations

With a rooftop helipad and the only state-designated regional trauma center in Montgomery County, Abington helps more than 106,000 patients annually. The Jefferson Abington Hospital Emergency Trauma Center and cardiac-related services are designed in a cluster, for rapid treatment.

Jefferson Lansdale Hospital’s Emergency Department provides quick response and early intervention for heart attack and other cardiac problems.

Abington heart and vascular experts serve both hospitals. Before patient arrival, our team receives information from EKG transmissions sent by emergency crews. This enables us to work quickly once a patient is at the hospital.

Emergency Heart Treatments

Our specialists perform many heart emergency therapies. These include: angioplasty with stents to open blocked arteries and support artery walls; laser and rotoblator techniques, to grind down fatty deposits or break up blood clots; and hypothermic cardiac arrest therapy, which lowers body temperature to protect the brain and improve neurological function after a heart attack.
