Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center has been accredited as a Chest Pain Center since 2008 by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. We are the only facility in Ventura County that holds this designation. As an accredited facility we work closely with our pre-hospital partners in Emergency Medical Services to bring the best possible care to our community. Among our accomplishments we are proud to be the only hospital in the state to be certified by both Ventura and Los Angeles counties as a STEMI- designated center for rapid heart attack response. In addition, Los Robles Hospital is in the Nation's top 10% for acute heart attack care and our “door to balloon” times for transferring patients from hospital to hospital are among the best in the nation.
As an accredited chest pain center, all members of the hospital and pre-hospital teams have utilized process improvement in order to work together for the care of our patients. In treating a heart attack there is a critical window of time to save heart muscle; which is why we apply these same processes to anyone in the hospital who may have a heart attack.
The benefits to being a chest pain accredited facility go beyond the improved evidence-based processes. At Los Robles Hospital our goal is to create awareness for heart disease so that you have the latest information available to you. We provide year-round lectures and community education events to showcase the latest treatments and breakthroughs in the fight against heart disease.
