Chest Pain Center

When chest pain happens and seconds count, you need help quickly. The American College of Cardiology awarded North Kansas City Hospital a new Chest Pain Accreditation with Primary PCI for our speed and efficiency in treating chest pain and heart attack symptoms.

American College of Cardiology Chest Pain Accreditation

The award also recognizes our:

  • Constant communication with paramedics and other emergency personnel while they are en route to the hospital with you
  • Quick assessment and diagnosis when you arrive, using our 64-slice CT scanner for enhanced visual images of your heart
  • 24/7 access to our Cardiac Catheterization Lab
  • Rapid response from the time you arrive in the Emergency Room until you reach advanced heart care in our Cardiac Cath Lab—a response time that is better than the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association recommendation.

Our full-service cardiovascular program has all the resources to improve your chance of surviving a heart attack in one spot, meaning we won't need to transfer you to another hospital, which takes valuable time.
