The Oklahoma City Metro's First Accredited Chest Pain Center

Norman Regional's HealthPlex hospital has received Chest Pain Center Accreditation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC), an international organization that focuses on transforming cardiovascular care by assisting facilities in their effort to create communities of excellence that bring together quality, cost and patient satisfaction.

The Norman Regional HealthPlex is the first hospital in the Oklahoma City metro area to have achieved this level of national recognition.

To patients this means that processes are in place that meet strict criteria aimed at:

  • Reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment
  • Treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved
  • Monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack to ensure that they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital
