Call 911 immediately at the onset of heart attack symptoms.
Chest pain is one of the most common reasons people come to the Emergency Department at Blake Medical Center. To increase our readiness, the hospital has established a community initiative with the Manatee County EMS system to treat patients with cardiac problems faster.
Our Chest Pain Center incorporates all the hospital diagnostic and treatment services. We are continuously available for patients who are experiencing chest pain or symptoms related to a cardiac event.
Our Emergency team integrates with EMS to provide the fastest and best care possible. Emergency physicians and staff work closely with cardiologists, the catheterization lab and other medical specialists and diagnostic services within the hospital to ensure quick diagnosis and treatment.
