Chest Pain Center

Chest pressure … pain in the jaw or arm … indigestion or nausea … shortness of breath … fatigue … profuse sweating

Heart attacks strike men and women in different ways, and no two heart attacks are alike. So if you experience any of the signs or symptoms of heart attack – take an aspirin and call 9-1-1 immediately. There is no time to waste.

King’s Daughters main hospital in Ashland has been continuously accredited as a Chest Pain Center by the American College of Cardiology/Society for Cardiovascular Patient Care. The hospital is fully equipped and ready to handle the most complex of heart attacks.

We were the first hospital in this region to meet the society’s high standards, in 2004, and we’ve been continuously accredited ever since.

Our intense focus on caring for heart attack patients quickly and efficiently makes a difference. Our average door-to-balloon (D2B) time meets, or is better than, the 90-minute national goal.

It’s good to know that when minutes count, King’s Daughters is committed to quick care … and our experts make the most of every second.
