Emergency Department physicians are board certified in emergency medicine and follow national guidelines to provide heart attack and stroke patients with the right treatments, right away.

With warmth and consideration, advanced technology can feel very friendly. The Cardiovascular Institute of Carolina’s two new catheterization labs allow physicians to treat more patients with heart attacks, stroke and vascular disease, while shortening procedure time. Advanced imaging technology produces clearer, more detailed images, making it easier for doctors to diagnose patients and perform interventional procedures quickly and accurately. The Cardiovascular Institute can:

  • Diagnose and open blocked blood vessels
  • Install endovascular stent grafts
  • Implant pacemakers and biventricular assist devices
  • Repair atrial septal defects

Door-to-Balloon (D2B) TIME
To ensure swift emergency cardiac care, we focus on shortening the time between a patient’s arrival and artery-clearing balloon angioplasty. We consistently achieve D2B times of less than 60 minutes, far faster than the national standard of 90 minutes.

We are consistently one of the top-ranked hospitals in the nation for quality measures in heart attack and pneumonia care. We actively participate in initiatives for continuous improvement in treatment for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), congestive heart failure and surgical care.

Leading the Way
in Best Practices

ARMC participates in the American College of Cardiology's (ACC) D2B (Door to Balloon) Alliance™. D2B is a best-practice guideline for patients having a heart attack. ACC developed the D2B initiative to decrease the time it takes to restore blood flow to the heart of an emergency room patient who arrives with chest pain. We continue to work with state and local groups on ways to transmit EKGs from ambulances en route to the hospital, so that staff and physicians are prepared before the patient arrives. Learn more about this groundbreaking initiative.

Aiken Regional Medical Centers is owned and operated by a subsidiary of Universal Health Services, Inc.(UHS), a King of Prussia, PA-based company, that is one of the largest healthcare management companies in the nation.
