We Take Your Health to Heart

Scottsdale Healthcare’s Heart & Vascular program offers world-class care brought to you by highly recognized and experienced physicians and nurses, specially trained to diagnose and treat cardiac disease. Our dedicated team of experts provides comprehensive care from common cardiac conditions to the most complex.

If you have chest discomfort or pain lasting more than 5 minutes,
CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY. This can be a sign of a heart attack.

 

All three Scottsdale Healthcare hospitals—Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center, Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center and Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital—are accredited as Certified Chest Pain Centers, recognizing the quality care provided to chest pain patients and collaboration with local emergency medical services.

Accreditation as a Chest Pain Center means each hospital meets or exceeds a wide set of stringent criteria and they have completed on-site evaluations by the Society of Chest Pain Centers. 

Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital received full Cycle II accreditation, an advanced designation due to its ability to provide a higher level of care through detailed coordination of emergency services among clinical staff and departments, as well as with emergency medical personnel. 

Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center and Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center have earned Cycle II accreditation with PCI, indicating the further ability to perform percutaneous coronary intervention or angioplasty. Angioplasty is a procedure in which a balloon-like device is placed into a coronary artery to remove blockages that cause heart attacks. 

Chest Pain Center designation affirms that Scottsdale Healthcare has coordinated training and care between local emergency medical service providers and the hospitals’ emergency departments, cardiac cath labs and cardiologists in treating patients with chest pain and heart attacks.

Scottsdale Healthcare has assembled a top team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, cardiovascular anesthesiologists, radiologists who specialize in cardiac imaging and highly skilled nurses working together to provide leading cardiac care. Scottsdale Healthcare serves as a preferred referral center for heart and vascular disease throughout Arizona.
