We Are an Accredited Chest Pain Center
We earned our accreditation from the American College of Cardiology, meaning we meet or exceed quality of care measures for patients who may be having a heart attack or other cardiac event.
The Highest Levels of Cardiac Care
The national benchmark for obtaining and interpreting an EKG is 10 minutes. At 5 minutes, Lake Cumberland consistently outperforms this benchmark, which facilitates early diagnosis of a heart attack for patients coming directly to our ED.
We understand that every minute counts when you're experiencing a heart attack. National standards* encourage a door-to-balloon time (the time between first medical contact and the opening of a blocked artery) of 90 minutes or less. At Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, we've taken patients door-to-balloon in as little as 10 minutes.
Our emergency department is integrated with the local emergency medical system (EMS), allowing our team to initiate a STEMI Alert from the field/home, which means significantly faster treatment times for our patients.
Post Cardiac Care
We facilitate communication to make sure you’re aware of your patient’s hospitalization and plan of care.
Quality Heart Care, Close to Home
As a network affiliate with UK's Gill Heart and Vascular Institute, our goal is to enhance access to high-quality cardiovascular care by providing the right care in the right place at the right time; preferably as close to home as possible for our patients. Our partnership with Gill Heart provides cardiovascular-specific education and training programs for local physicians, nurses and staff to ensure the most up-to-date cardiovascular information is available to our patients as well as access to programs and services that may not be available in our local community.
