The Heart Attack Treatment Center

At. St. Bernards Emergency Department, there's a reason why we don't have a chest pain center. Many heart attack victims never have chest pain. Instead, they have other warning signs like unexplained nausea, dizziness, numbness in the left arm or indigestion. The physicians at The St. Bernards Heart Attack Intervention Center are ready around-the-clock-to help you make the most of time by treating you at the first sign of a heart attack, because every second counts. 

Results Pending 

St. Bernards utilizes a Results Pending area (within the Emergency Department) which is open 24 hours a day offering a comfortable place to await results of tests. The doctor or care provider will come into the area and provide a discussion of the results and the treatment plan for each patient. Afterward, you may be discharged home from this area.

Express Care is a twelve-bed area dedicated to non-urgent patients open four days a week from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and three days a week from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Starting at triage inside the emergency department, trained nurses determine what level of care is needed by incoming patients.
