First Top-Accredited Chest Pain Center in Florida
In 2016, the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care accredited UF Health Jacksonville
as a Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI and Resuscitation.
This is the highest designation for chest pain centers and, at the time of the announcement,
we were the only hospital in Florida and one of just 24 hospitals in the United
States to hold this prestigious designation.
To receive accreditation, a hospital must:
- Always have staff on duty or minutes away from the facility to treat patients with
the most serious heart attacks
- Be equipped with a robust hypothermia program for follow-up treatment
- Maintain a "no-diversion policy" for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients, which
guarantees no one will be turned away or "diverted" to another healthcare facility
at any time, for any reason
- Have a separate Multidisciplinary Resuscitation Committee with representatives from
EMS, emergency medicine, nursing, surgery and administration

We look forward to serving you.
