Emergency Cardiac Care, Interventional Cardiology and Vascular Care

At Adventist Health, we take heart health very seriously. Starting with emergency care, Adventist Health Lodi Memorial and Dameron Hospital are both San Joaquin County designated STEMI receiving centers for heart attacks. This means we have the expertise, facilities, doctors and team members to best help you in a heart emergency.

With shorter wait times and a surgery team on standby, you can trust our Adventist Health facilities in both Stockton and Lodi to be ready for a cardiac emergency. In most cases, EMS alerts us of a patient’s pending arrival, and we begin prepping for immediate medical intervention — because every second counts. For strokes, our Emergency Department can perform diagnostic imaging and administer lifesaving medications within 60 minutes of arrival, the crucial window of time that offers the greatest odds of recovery.

Another important part of heart health is prevention. At Adventist Health, we provide exceptional care for those seeking treatment of heart or blood vessel conditions before an emergency occurs. This includes advanced cardiology, cardiac surgery, endovascular, electrophysiology and vascular surgical interventions.

The best place to start in managing your heart health is knowing your risk by taking a FREE heart health risk assessment.
