VHVI has initiated an Acute Myocardial Infarction Network to provide a regional resource for patients in the middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky area. The MI Network allows patients who present to emergency rooms outside of Nashville with ST-segments Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) to receive appropriate care within the recommended treatment window. This is vital in guaranteeing that the coronary vessel is opened in a timely manner restoring normal blood flow to the heart, therefore decreasing damage to the heart.
Vanderbilt Heart is accredited by the Society of Chest Pain Centers.
