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.
