Accredited Chest Pain Center


Seconds count when you are having a heart attack. It can mean life or death. It's important you entrust your care with the skilled hands of the Hardin Medical Center staff and our Accredited Chest Pain Center.

Being an Accredited Chest Pain Center means Hardin Medical Center meets or exceeds national standards in cardiac care. Patients are quickly, accurately and safely treated using the latest technology shown to improve outcomes of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).

As an accredited Chest Pain Center, the care of the patient with chest pain and signs and symptoms of possible acute coronary syndrome (a heart attack) begins the moment the patient arrives at the Hardin Medical Center Emergency Department or the moment the emergency personnel are summoned to the patient's home. This high-level of care is extremely important especially since we are in a rural setting.

The protocols our medical personnel follow can and does save lives.
