Aug 07, 2019 02:23PM ● By Alyssa McGinnis

Avera Heart Hospital has earned Chest Pain Center Accreditation from the American College of Cardiology’s Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC) program.

Avera Heart Hospital helped EHAC significantly reduce heart attack deaths in the United States and around the globe by “deputizing” members via educational programs that expand knowledge of Early Heart Attack Care.

The programs help teach people the warning signs of heart attack and chest pain emergencies, as well as web-based training and learning management systems.
