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 available designation for chest pain centers and, at the time of the announcement, UF Health Jacksonville was one of only 24 hospitals in the country and the first in Florida to hold this prestigious designation. To receive the primary PCI and resuscitation designation, hospitals are required to have staff on duty or just minutes 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; and have a separate Multidisciplinary Resuscitation Committee with representatives from EMS, emergency medicine, nursing, surgery and administration.
