A team of providers, nurses and staff at Spring Valley Hospital work in cooperation with other specialists to provide efficient, quality treatment for a number of complex problems. It’s important to seek emergency care if you or someone you know is experiencing a medical emergency.
Spring Valley Hospital, an Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI by the American College of Cardiology, has received the Mission: Lifeline® Gold Receiving Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association®.
The faster a heart attack patient receives artery-clearing intervention, the better their chance of survival and recovery. The Emergency team coordinates with local EMS professionals so our staff is able to act quickly when the patient arrives for a rapid assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan. Emergency intervention for heart attacks is coordinated with cardiologists, radiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons.
Depending on the type and severity of the heart attack, the cardiac team takes patients from the Emergency Department directly to a cardiac catheterization lab to administer treatments to clear blocked arteries and restore blood and oxygen flow to damaged heart tissue. A cardiac team and fully-equipped cardiac catheterization suite are available 24 hours a day. Patients are rapidly evaluated and a course of treatment is begun.
With fast, team-based stroke services, a rapid-response Stroke Alert Team is available to evaluate and treat all stroke emergencies, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We also have an Interventional Radiology Suite with biplane imaging, enabling us to perform mechanical thrombectomies for acute strokes.
Spring Valley Hospital has been recognized as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association® Get With the Guidelines®–Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award and the Target: Stroke® Elite Honor Roll Plus award. Our team-based approach enables streamlined treatment and services. Recent clinical studies have shown that a team approach improves patient outcomes.
