In case of a life-threatening emergency,
please call 911.
Besides providing critical emergency services around the clock, the emergency
room at Inter-Community Hospital in Covina is a receiving center specifically
for heart attack patients.
This ER has been designated by Los Angeles County as a ST Elevation Myocardial
Infarction (STEMI) Receiving Center (SRC). Inter-Community is the only
hospital in the East San Gabriel Valley with this designation.
When a heart attack strikes, every second counts. The risk of permanent
damage increases the longer the artery remains blocked. The patients who
are now immediately transported to Inter-Community will arrive at a state-of-the-art
Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory more quickly than they would have before.
The designation makes it possible for medical professionals to achieve
the goal of opening a blocked heart artery within 90 minutes of when paramedics
perform the first electrocardiogram (EKG) in the field.
