Heart Rhythm Center Coming to Baptist Heart Hospital

Baptist Health is adding a new Heart Rhythm Center, which will house a team of medical caregivers specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of all heart rhythm disorders.

Common Conditions and Treatment Options

Baptist offers a complete spectrum of heart and vascular care resources.

Accredited Chest Pain Centers

The Society of Chest Pain Centers has accredited each of our adult hospitals, which means that we meet their high standards for emergency heart care and use evidence-based protocols that are proven to improve outcomes.

Our average “door-to-balloon time” exceeds the national standard due to evidence-based practices and our highly coordinated team. It measures the time from when a patient arrives at the hospital with chest pain, to when the patient enters our catheterization lab for balloon angioplasty to open blocked arteries.

Our community's emergency medical services (EMS) personnel use specialized communication tools to transmit vital information about the patients' condition to our emergency centers. Our "spoke and wheel" transfer design enables patients from all of our community hospitals to be quickly transported to Baptist Heart Hospital's Catheterization Lab, where our specialized team is pre-assembled and ready as the patient arrives.
