The Faster, the Better.

When it comes to cardiac care, particularly during a heart attack, time and expertise matter. It’s one thing to say that you’re better, but it’s another altogether to demonstrate it, day after day, with each and every patient.

  • 100% of heart attack patients who came to EIRMC received life-saving treatment within 90 minutes, the national goal for cardiac care.
  • EIRMC's average "door-to-balloon" time is 57 minutes, well below the national standard of 90 minutes. This refers to the elapsed time from when a heart attack patient arrives in the ER to when the life-saving catheter is inserted in the cath lab. The faster a heart attack patient receives care, the better the outcomes for the patient.
