What You Need to Know About Northside Hospital's STEMI Time

Last updated 4 years ago

STEMI stands for ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction. It is a particularly deadly kind of heart attack that is caused by a blockage in a coronary artery. Fast treatment is essential for good outcomes, so knowing hospital STEMI times can help you make important decisions about where to go for care.

When you need emergency cardiac care, you can trust Northside Hospital. We treat more ambulance-transfer STEMI patients than any other hospital in Pinellas County. Our average wait time for STEMI treatment is 60 minutes, which is well below the national standard of 90 minutes set by the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, and Joint Commission. STEMI times are an average of our STEMI treatment times for the past 52 weeks. Treatment times are defined by how long it takes to restore blood flow to the heart.

If you or someone you love is experiencing the symptoms of a heart attack, seek emergency treatment at Northside Hospital in the Tampa Bay area right away. Check our website for our STEMI waiting time or call (888) 598-9586 to learn more.
