Sumner County's First Accredited Chest Pain Center
We are proud to have been Sumner County's first Accredited Chest Pain Center for more than a decade. This means that our ER is equipped to rapidly diagnose and treat chest pain. Our teams are trained to recognize the signs of a life-threatening cardiac emergency and get you the right treatment as quickly as possible.
Treatment at an Accredited Chest Pain Center gives you a 37% increased survival rate in a cardiac emergency.
TriStar Hendersonville was one of the first six hospitals in the country to use cardiac scanning technology to view plaque build-up in the heart through lightning-quick CT scans.
Since then we've continue to raise the bar by consistently outperforming the national door-to-balloon time of 90 minutes with an average of 62 minutes.
Life-Saving Heart Care
We continue to work to enhance heart care in Sumner County by partnering with our local EMS teams. In the ambulance, they can send us your heart tests with 12-lead EKGs, so that we can activate our cardiac catheterization lab and ER team. Our EMS partners also have mobile therapeutic hypothermia units donated by TriStar Hendersonville and Tennessee Heart and Vascular - another tool in their arsenal to save lives that could otherwise be lost to heart disease.
