Chest Pain Center
Good Samaritan San Jose has earned accreditation from the Society of Cardiovascular
Patient Care for sustaining superior levels of service for patients experiencing
a cardiac episode.
Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the U.S., with 600,000
dying annually of heart disease. More than five million Americans visit
hospitals each year with chest pain. The Society’s accreditation
process ensures centers meet or exceed quality-of-care measures in acute
Our Emergency Room diagnoses and treats thousands of patients each year
for chest pain, stroke symptoms, and other cardiac and vascular ailments.
Unlike at some hospitals where specialist coverage is scarce, our hospital
ensures that cardiologists and cardiac surgeons are immediately available
at all times—day or night. Moreover, since time to diagnosis is
critical in instances of heart attacks and other critical conditions,
our emergency physicians use only the fastest, most accurate diagnostic
tests, such as the "on-line" electrocardiogram (EKG) system.
If you are experiencing chest pain or any other emergency, call 911 immediately.
