Heart Attack Care

Center for Heart Health

Call 911 and get to the hospital if you think you are having a heart attack

Getting to the hospital as quickly as possible is critical for optimal treatment of a heart attack. The team experts at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital are leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases and disorders. From the moment you arrive at our emergency department, our board-certified emergency medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and paramedics spring into action. They use the latest technology to diagnose and immediately begin to treat you.

In tandem with our well-regarded cardiac care team, we’ll use all of the available treatment and protocols to respond to your heart attack quickly. 

Our multi-disciplinary Cardiovascular Interventional Suite team has extensive experience, with superior outcomes, performing state-of-the-art minimally invasive cardiac and endovascular interventions.

If cardiovascular intervention is your best option, our highly-specialized team of experts is in place to quickly perform whatever is best, including cardiac catheterization, angioplasty and stent placement for your STEMI (ST elevation myocardial infarction).

Our interventional cardiologists are expert at using the transradial approach, performing procedures through the radial artery access in the wrist.

Cardiac Rehabilitation 

We have a professionally supervised Cardiac Rehab exercise program, certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, for those recovering from heart attacks, coronary artery bypass surgery, valve repair or replacement surgery, stable angina or percutaneous coronary artery intervention (PCI) procedures such as stenting and angioplasty.

Our series of team-supervised outpatient exercise sessions are tailored for your safety and progress as you recover. You also may opt for our continuous, supervised group exercise program to maintain cardiovascular fitness on an ongoing basis.
