A National Leader in Heart Care
St. Charles Health System is proud to offer some of the best cardiovascular care in the nation.
Our Heart One program brings physicians, emergency responders and area hospitals together to ensure that patients suffering from acute myocardial infarctions — or heart attacks — receive care as quickly as possible. The amount of time it takes for a heart attack patient to receive a stent once reaching St. Charles Bend — known as door-to-balloon time — is better than national averages.
In addition, St. Charles Bend has the lowest mortality rate for heart attack patients of all hospitals in the state of Oregon. The health system received the NCDR ACTION Registry — Get With the Guidelines Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2012 from the American College of Cardiology Foundation for implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients.
