No Matter Where They Start, Heart Attacks Stop Here

Our door-to-balloon times consistently meet or beat the industry standards in treatment for chest pain. St. Francis is an accredited Chest Pain Center which means you'll receive advanced diagnosis and treatment - fast. Door-to-balloon time is the timeframe in which a heart attack patient arrives in the Emergency Department to the moment the patient is treated in the cardiac cath lab. More efficient and timely care means less damage to the heart muscle and a greater chance of surviving a heart attack.

St. Francis is an Accredited Stroke Center

St. Francis is a certified Advanced Primary Stroke Center, a designation given by the Joint Commission. This certification means our physicians and staff are trained to recognize and treat the symptoms of a stroke to provide you the best chance for a complete recovery.

Convenient, Efficient Care

St. Francis adopted a new policy in which information is obtained at the time of triage, and if there is a room open, our patients are immediately brought into a room. Our physician-to-patient ratios ensures that you will be seen quickly - even during busy times.

The department is equipped with time-saving technology, including digital imaging, electronic medical records and electronic tracking to decrease your length of stay and decrease medical errors.

Experts in Emergency Medicine

Our physicians are all board certified with residency training in emergency medicine. Our outcomes placed us in the top five percent of hospitals nationwide for Emergency Care by HealthGrades, the nation's leading independent health care ratings organization.
