Heart Attack

A heart attack happens when the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle with blood and oxygen are blocked.

Once a patient arrives at the hospital, getting them to the catheterization laboratory for potentially life-saving balloon angioplasty to open up any blocked artery is critical.

The hospitals of St. John Providence Health System consistently have faster door-to-balloon times (the time it takes to get to from the emergency room door to the start of treatment in the heart catheterization laboratory) than most hospitals.
