Heart Attack Care
St. Mary’s uses systems that enable Emergency Medical Personnel to transmit EKGs to staff in the ED so they can quickly diagnose a heart attack and be ready to treat you as soon as you arrive at the hospital.

Personal Medical Information Card
When a medical emergency happens, minutes can be the difference between full recovery, lasting damage or death. Having a personal medical information card with you when you arrive at the ED can help staff members quickly assess your medical history and provide care as fast as possible. Download this card, type your information directly onto the form and print out copies. Carry one with your driver’s license or photo ID, keep one in the glove compartment of your car and give a copy to someone close to you. By looking at your card, we can quickly learn about your health conditions, the medications you’re taking, your allergies and intolerances and the best phone numbers to reach your primary physician and emergency contact person.
