Heart Care Services
As the major health care provider in Lassen County, Calif., Banner Lassen Medical Center provides critical care to patients experiencing chest pain or other discomforts due to heart disease.
Our experienced staff at the Banner Lassen Emergency department immediately assesses each patient’s condition and begins treatment as quickly as possible.
Depending signs and symptoms, a patient may be admitted to the hospital for further observation and diagnostic testing.
When patients require more advanced diagnostic, surgical or non-surgical care, they may be transferred to another larger hospital.
Patients who remain with Banner Lassen are typically evaluated, either on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Often, we will perform a stress test done with either exercise or medication to get a patient’s heart rate up so we can measure heart function. Banner Lassen can also perform CT scans, echocardiography or EKGs.
Banner Lassen provides patients with a safe, efficient and caring hospital environment. Our hospital offers supplemental programs to help patients better understand the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. We have a reputation for serving patients with compassion, dignity and respect.
