Emergency Care

In the event of a heart attack, it’s always comforting to know that an internationally recognized cardiac hospital is on hand to help. Jewish Hospital boasts the region’s only Accredited Chest Pain Center, as stated by the Society of Chest Pain Centers (SCPC) and was also Kentucky’s first dedicated Emergency Heart Care Center, opening in 1991.

Seven Emergency Departments throughout Kentuckiana are staffed 24 hours a day, seven-days-a-week with physicians who are board-certified/board-eligible in Emergency Medicine. These physicians are equipped to evaluate, diagnose and treat any type of illness or injury.

When the first warning signs hit, know that you will be in good hands at the Jewish Hospital Emergency Heart Care Center.
