Patients experiencing chest pain receive a rapid diagnosis or are further monitored at St. Luke’s Chest Pain Centers in our Boise and Meridian emergency departments. Patients diagnosed with heart attack are put on the fast track to immediate treatment, while those whose chest pain is not clearly a heart attack but require further testing, rest comfortably in our observation unit.
We help prevent unnecessary hospitalizations for patients whose chest pain turns out not to be heart-related. More importantly, we’re able to reduce the rate of “missed“ heart attacks, because patients with an unclear condition are not sent home without further observation and testing.
Our Chest Pain Centers are staffed by emergency physicians and nurses with advanced training in cardiac care, consulting cardiologists, and other professional staff.
Testing may include:
You’ll also receive education on a variety of heart-related topics, such as risk factors for heart disease, healthy eating, and exercise to support you in improving your health and quality of life.
The most valuable thing we have is our health. And the most valuable thing St. Luke's can do is help you live as healthy a life as possible. We're taking care forward as we develop new ways—and refine the tried and true—to improve health, improve care, and lower costs.
