The Society of Chest Pain Centers Accreditation


In July of 2010, CaroMont Health received Chest Pain Accreditation from The Society of Chest Pain Centers. This accreditation affirms the success of our current cardiovascular program as well as our commitment to higher standards and dedication to providing exceptional cardiac care.

CaroMont Health is accredited by the Society of Chest Pain Centers (SCPC), an international organization dedicated to eliminating heart disease as the number one cause of death worldwide. The SCPC accreditation process guarantees that health care facilities meet or exceed the quality-of-care measures in acute cardiac medicine. Key areas in which an Accredited Chest Pain Center must demonstrate expertise include integrating the emergency department with the local emergency medical system, continually seeking to improve processes and procedures, ensuring the ongoing training of Accredited Chest Pain Center personnel and supporting community outreach and educational programs.
