STEMI Receiving Center
White Memorial Hospital is a STEMI (Heart Attack) Receiving Center (SRC). The hospital meets stringent standards set by Los Angeles County Emergency Services (EMS). At White Memorial we are recognized by LA County as a designated receiving center for patients with heart attacks. Emergency medical personnel will bypass non-SRC hospitals and bring patients directly to White Memorial Emergency Department for treatment.
Patients with heart attack symptoms such as chest pain, or shortness of breath will receive immediate attention in the emergency department.
Our cardiology call team and catheterization lab is called and responds to treat patients to meet the guidelines of the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology.
