Chest Pain Center
As an accredited Chest Pain Center from the National Society of Chest Pain Centers, this national designation affirms Bayfront’s commitment of providing patients with the highest quality of heart care from a patient’s arrival in the emergency room.

Four beds in our emergency room based-center are designated for chest pain observation 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Once it is determined that the patient needs additional cardiac care, the patient has instant access to Bayfront’s expert team of cardiologists, state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, catheterization laboratories, and premier open-heart surgery center.

The National Society of Chest Pain Centers is a patient-centered professional organization focused on improving care for patients and the importance of rapid diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. Bayfront was the first hospital in Pinellas County to receive the national designation.
