Banner Ironwood works closely with Banner Heart Hospital in a unique partnership to deliver nationally recognized heart care.
Ironwood offers basic inpatient cardiac care, including an Intensive Care Unit. Patients who need emergency cardiac treatment are transferred to Banner Heart Hospital in Mesa.
It's important to note that Banner Heart Hospital exceeds the national recommendation of "door to balloon" time of 90 minutes.
Door-to-balloon time measures how long it takes a patient who arrives in the Emergency department to receive a catheter in the hospital's cardiac cath lab.
A short door-to-ballon time reduces a patient's chances of cardiac muscle damage and the extent of that damage.
