Heart Attack Care

Dr. DiverDr. Daniel Diver, Chief of Cardiology 

“Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Saint Francis has dedicated a specialized concentration of high-quality medical care and advanced technology in the Hoffman Heart and Vascular Institute of Connecticut. 

“A multidisciplinary team cares for Acute Myocardial Infarction patients based on the core measure model - ensuring that patients receive the best care according to clinical standards. 

“The Institute also offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services, and is one of New England's highest-volume centers for cardiac catheterizations and open heart procedures.”  

A heart attack, also called an Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), happens when blood flow to the heart slows or stops. The core measures for AMI focus on reducing the severity of a heart attack and improving future health.
