Stat Heart

Passavant is part of a special cardiac care program called the Stat Heart Program that identifies, treats, and transfers acute heart attack patients to a cardiac cath lab within 90 minutes of arriving in the Emergency Department. Stat Heart is a collaborative effort between Passavant, SIU and Springfield Clinic cardiologists and hospitals. Seven other rural hospitals participate in Stat Heart.

Once the Passavant Emergency Department physician identifies an acute heart attack patient, the Stat Heart team is activated and transport by helicopter is arranged for the patient. The cardiologist and the receiving Springfield hospital are alerted and the Stat Heart team is activated. All activity occurs within a very short time so the patient arrives in the cardiac cath lab in 90 minutes or less—which is even faster than many metropolitan hospitals.
