Invasive/Interventional Cardiology

Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, Providence Holy Cross and Providence Tarzana Medical Centers have established a specialized program in each hospital, Chest Pain-Code AMI, to ensure that every patient who appears to be having a heart attack receives expedited diagnosis and treatment. Part of that expedited treatment can include angioplasty. Currently, other community hospitals in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys without the technology and expertise to provide angioplasty must either use clot-dissolving medications or immediately transfer the heart attack patient to hospitals like Providence Saint Joseph and Providence Holy Cross in which angioplasty can be promptly performed.
