Making heart health a priority

Heart health is about more than just your heart. Blood pressure, cholesterol, family history and other factors all play important roles in keeping your heart strong. If you have questions about your heart health but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.

Accredited by the American College of Cardiology (ACC)

Colorado Plains Medical Center continues its ongoing commitment to top notch care of cardiac patients.  The facility was awarded its second 3-year accreditation as an official Chest Pain Center in September, 2019.

CPMC continues to invest extensive resources in preparing for and maintaining this accreditation.  The on-site evaluation examines how the facility provides care for individuals with heart attack complaints.  The evaluation starts with the patient’s arrival at the hospital and continues throughout their stay and discharge.  Experts from the American College of Cardiology were able to see that hospital staff of all roles from housekeepers to ICU nurses know the warning signs of a heart attack. CPMC demonstrated we are a frequent educator in Morgan County about the signs of a heart attack and how to perform bystander CPR.  

If you arrive at CPMC with a heart attack, you can expect your serious condition to be identified quickly, powerful clot-bursting medication administered within minutes when appropriate, and emergent transfer to a cardiologist at a larger hospital arranged even as state of the art medications are infusing.

Nationally Recognized Chest Pain Center

Rural hospitals rarely have full-time cardiologists available or all the heart procedures of hospitals in large cities. Being a nationally recognized Chest Pain Center exemplifies CPMC's commitment to giving you the best care available in the crucial minutes you arrive at our door and confidence that we know how to provide the emergent treatment you need if you have a heart attack. 

This accomplishment was achieved through a collaboration of all hospital staff and local Morgan County EMS. We were able to receive this re-accreditation because of the diligence and hard work everyone has put into making certain goals achievable.
