As an accredited Chest Pain Center, DMC Huron Valley- Sinai Hospital offers rapid diagnosis and fast-track treatment before a cardiac situation worsens, often preventing a severe heart attack from occurring.
The Society of Chest Pain Centers awarded Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital the three-year accreditation with a percutaneous cardiac intervention (PCI) designation, the only hospital in the area to be awarded such designation. PCI is the technical name for angioplasty, the process of clearing a blocked or narrowed coronary artery that could lead to a heart attack. The accreditation follows the Society's rigorous review of the hospital’s clinical protocols and the patient care it provides chest pain patients.

What's Your Risk for Heart Disease?
Cardiovascular disease remains America’s number one cause of death, according to the American Heart Association. This startling statistic can be reversed with early detection and preventative measures.
Determine if you are at risk of developing heart disease by taking this simple test:
Are you a smoker or do you live or work with someone who smokes daily?
Are you a man over the age of 45 or a woman over the age of 55?
Do you or someone in your family have a history of heart disease?
Are you overweight?
Is your total cholesterol higher than 200mg/dL or are you unsure of your cholesterol count?
Is your blood pressure higher than 140/90 or are you unsure of your blood pressure?
Do you exercise less than three times a week for 30 minutes?
Do you have diabetes?
If you answered YES to two or more of these questions then you may be at risk for heart disease. Taking appropriate measures now can reduce your risk of serious health issues. We urge you to visit your primary care physician or call 1-888-DMC- 2500 for a referral. It could save your life.
