Heart Attack Receiving Center
Emanuel Medical Center is a designated as an official receiving center for heart attack patients.
The designation comes from the Mountain-Valley Emergency Medical Services Agency, which oversees and regulates emergency care systems in Stanislaus County. The agency conducted an independent review of Emanuel’s emergency cardiac care procedures and determined they met all appropriate standards.
The designation brings the commitment of quality, local emergency cardiac care home to people in Turlock, Hilmar, Denair and other nearby communities.
The time saved can be critical. A heart attack occurs when the blood vessels that bring oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle itself become blocked. If that blockage is cleared quickly, the heart can recover. If it’s not, permanent damage to the heart occurs.
