Mesa's Mountain Vista Medical Center has received a Cycle III Chest Pain Center accreditation by the Society of Chest Pain Centers (SCPC). Mountain Vista earned this accreditation by demonstrating a higher level of expertise in diagnosing and treating patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack - which is one of the top reasons adults visit the emergency room each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"This designation, held by only 14 percent of hospitals in the United States, highlights our clinical excellence and commitment to cardiac care for our patients and the community," said Yancey Gaither, RN, director, emergency services, at Mountain Vista Medical Center. "Patients who are treated at an accredited Chest Pain Center, like Mountain Vista, receive higher quality of care and achieve improved outcomes."
