Marin’s ONLY Accredited
Chest Pain Center.
When you’re having a heart attack, every minute counts. That’s why it’s critical to get care from
an Accredited Chest Pain Center. This impressive designation, awarded by the American College of
Cardiology and the American Heart Association, means Marin General Hospital follows strict protocols
for immediate, life-saving cardiac care. Our seasoned Emergency Department team is exceptionally
well-trained to handle cardiovascular emergencies quickly and efficiently. We even have paramedic rigs
send us remote electrocardiogram results right from the ambulance, to make sure the cath lab is ready
for patients who need it. And our “door-to-treatment” time for those who need cardiac catheterization is
exceptional—twice as fast as the national average. So when chest pain strikes, don’t wait: call 911.
We’ll take care of the rest.
