Emergency heart care

Mercy Hospital’s emergency room staff is specially trained to respond day or night to any sign or symptom a patient may present.

If you are experiencing chest pain or discomfort, an ER physician, cardiologist and nursing team react competently and quickly to determine the cause.

Early heart attack care begins with the onset of mild chest discomfort. At this stage, heart damage can be prevented. We encourage patients experiencing any chest pain to call 911 or come into the emergency department to be seen by a physician to determine the cause of the pain.

For more information on heart and vascular services, call 1-866-443-2782.
