Holy Cross Named Heart Attack Receiving Center

Providence Holy Cross Medical Center has been designated one of 12 specialty centers for acute heart attack patients by the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services. The hospital is prepared to provide early intervention to heart attack patients in the San Clarita Valley and north San Fernando Valley. The designation applies to hospitals that treat patients suffering from a specific heart attack, called a STEMI. Paramedics are now required to bypass non-designated hospitals and take a heart victim to a designated STEMI center.
