Partnership with Baywood
Banner Heart Hospital patients benefit from its location next to Banner Baywood Medical Center, the East Valley’s only Accredited Chest Pain Center.
Baywood earned this accreditation for having a high level of expertise in treating patients with heart-attack symptoms.
The accreditation recognizes the availability of emergency treatment options on one medical campus through Banner Baywood’s Emergency department and Banner Heart’s advanced cardiac care, which offers catheterization procedures.
Hospitals that receive accreditation by the Society of Chest Pain Centers emphasize the importance of diagnostic and treatment programs that provide more efficient and effective evaluation, as well as more appropriate and rapid treatment of patients with chest pain and other heart attack symptoms.
To become an Accredited Chest Pain Center, Banner Baywood was rigorously evaluated for its ability to assess, diagnose, and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack. The accreditation shows Banner Baywood excels at:
- Reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment
- Treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time to limit damage to the heart
- Monitoring patients to make sure they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital
