Chest Pain: Get Treatment Fast
Bayfront is a nationally accredited Chest Pain Center and was the first in Pinellas County to earn this prestigious accreditation from the National Society of Chest Pain Centers. This national designation affirms Bayfront’s commitment to providing patients with the highest quality heart care from a patient’s arrival in the emergency room until discharge.
Four beds in our emergency room-based center are designated for chest pain observation 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week. Once 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.
