Valley Presbyterian Hospital offers a full-service emergency department that provides basic emergency care and minor treatment services.
Valley Presbyterian Hospital is a STEMI Receiving Center for heart attack patients who are brought into the Emergency Department by paramedics. The STEMI Receiving Center designation means that the Emergency Department, Cardiac Cath Lab, cardiologists on staff, and Cardiac Surgery Services all work together effectively to preserve a patient's heart muscle within 90 minutes following the onset of chest pain.
