Chest Pain Experts
When it comes to diagnosing cardiac issues, time is of the essence if a heart attack has occurred and Polk Medical Center is ready to help – quickly. Our certified technicians run a variety of tests to see if your heart is working. Polk Medical Center's goal is to get heart attack patients to Floyd Medical Center's heart cath lab in 30 minutes.
As a result of the hospital's efforts, Polk Medical Center has received Chest Pain Certification from the American College of Cardiology.
We also work to educate the community to recognize signs and symptoms of a heart attack and how to respond to save a life. Through Hands-Only CPR training and our online Early Heart Attack Education, community members can be prepared to help a loved one in the event a heart attack happens.
