Did you know St. Luke's beats the national average when it comes to fast heart attack care? It's a nationwide goal for ERs to open blocked heart arteries in 90 minutes or less. Last year St. Luke's average was 57 minutes and its fastest time was 15 minutes.
St. Luke's has earned the Chest Pain Center Accreditation with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and Resuscitation from the American College of Cardiology based on rigorous onsite evaluation of the staff's ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack. St. Luke's is the first hospital in Iowa to achieve this accreditation.
For patients in rural areas, critical condition or who need transportation to distant facilities, our LifeGuard Air Ambulance is available around-the-clock to help transport patients in Iowa and surrounding areas to St. Luke's.
