Chest Pain Center
Eighty-five percent of heart damage occurs within the first two hours of a heart attack, which is why Olathe Health care teams are on alert to quickly recognize the signs and treat patients as quickly as possible. As a Certified Chest Pain Center (CPC), Olathe Medical Center has a dedicated STEMI team prepared to diagnose and if necessary take patients to the cath lab within minutes to treat blockages and open affected arteries.
We’ve been recognized for our ability to quickly provide the highest standards of care to stroke and heart attack patients by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association. Olathe Health is the proud recipient of a number of Get With The Guidelines awards, a hospital-based quality improvement initiative created by the American Heart/American Stroke Association to improve the care of patients with cardiac diseases and stroke.
The Chest Pain Center at Olathe Medical Center is Certified by the Joint Commission. The center received its most recent certification in September 2017 when the Joint Commission found no deficiencies while conducting its survey.
Olathe Medical Center received the Platinum (Highest) Recognition for Heart Attack Patient Care for the sixth consecutive year from the American College of Cardiology. The ACTION Registry - Get With the Guidelines Platinum Performance Achievement Award is given to the top 3 percent of hospitals nationwide.
Olathe Medical Center received the Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award for exemplary stroke treatment from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. This is the highest award given for stroke care from these associations. Olathe Medical Center is also a recipient of the Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite.
