At Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, our goal is for heart attack patients to receive care an average of 60 minutes or less, a full 33% faster than the American College of Cardiology national benchmark of 90 minutes. Penrose-St. Francis, along with local emergency medical services providers, continue to excel locally, statewide and nationally in our response times for heart attack patients.
