State-of-the-art cardiac care facilities

Should you or a loved one require hospitalization, Emerson Hospital has invested in advanced technology and resources to provide the best-possible cardiac care:
  • A dedicated Coronary Care Unit (CCU) where patients with serious heart problems are closely monitored and receive specialized, individual care from board-certified cardiologists and nurses with advanced training in cardiac care
  • For patients with heart-related conditions who require monitoring but do not need the intensive nursing care of the CCU, every one of Emerson’s 179 beds is equipped with state-of-the-art Telemetry equipment, which continuously monitors patients’ heart rates and rhythms 

Quality heart care, quality outcomes

At Emerson Hospital, we take our commitment to quality care seriously. That is why we closely measure and monitor how we do in complying with key measures related to care quality and good patient outcomes. You can see how we are doing here.
