The Hospitals of Providence – Northeast Campus Beats the National Standard of STEMI Care by 10 minutes


Acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is a life-threatening condition that requires prompt medical attention. The sooner a STEMI patient receives treatment, the better their chances of survival and lowers risk of serious complications. The national standard of care for STEMI treatment, door-to-balloon, is 90 minutes.

The Hospitals of Providence
We are going beyond the national standard of care. We have achieved a door-to-balloon time of 80 minutes or less for STEMI patients.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve the patient experience to offer better, faster and more convenient care to the neighborhoods we serve. We are proud to say that our hospital has achieved door-to-balloon times of under 80 minutes for STEMI patients. This is significantly lower than the national standard of care, and it is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team. We believe that this is a critical factor in improving patient outcomes, and we are committed to continuing to provide the highest quality care to our patients.”

– Dr. Kelly Campbell, The Hospitals of Providence – Northeast Campus

As an extension of The Hospitals of Providence, our small-format neighborhood hospitals are conveniently located in the El Paso community and have door-to-doctor wait times of 10 minutes or less. This means patients get emergency care within minutes of arrival. Our dedicated team of nurses and board-certified physicians quickly assess the patient’s condition and make the necessary arrangements for transfer to the appropriate facility when needed for higher-acuity or STEMI patients.

In a recent study, patients who were treated for STEMI at one of our neighborhood hospitals had a door-to-balloon time of 80 minutes, including a 20 minute transfer time, which is significantly lower than the national standard of care. This means that patients were able to receive the life-saving treatment they needed sooner, which led to improved outcomes.

“I was so grateful that I was able to receive treatment so quickly. I felt like I was in good hands from the moment I arrived at the Northeast Campus,” said a patient who was treated for a STEMI at one of our neighborhood hospitals.
