Chest Pain and Heart Attack Emergency Center
If you are experiencing the symptoms of a heart attack dial 911!
Chest Pain does not always mean you are having a heart attack and can be associated with other conditions. St. Dominic's offers a chest pain observation unit where the patient will be given further examination - beyond that of a normal emergency room evaluation.
When a patient arrives with chest pain at St. Dominic's Emergency Department they are monitored and evaluated by a specially trained staff of cardiac specialists. The emphasis is on rapid treatment and providing a quiet, comforting atmosphere for the patient and family members until the condition is determined.
If the physician believes the chest pain is associated with a cardiac condition, the patient will be admitted, and treated, by our team of highly credentialed physicians.
