Our innovative approach to the diagnosis and treatment of chest pain through the Chest Pain Observation Unit leads to efficient care for our cardiac patients and is nationally recognized by the Society of Chest Pain Centers.

Our heart failure program is the first in Nevada to be certified by The Joint Commission.
Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center's complete cardiovascular services include a cardio-pulmonary laboratory, three catheterization labs, tilt table technology, cardiac surgery, inpatient cardiac rehabilitation and the Cardiac Progressive Care Unit — a dedicated care unit for cardiac patients.
Chest Pain Center
The Chest Pain Observation Unit at Desert Springs Hospital was the first in Nevada to be nationally recognized by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care for meeting or exceeding national care standards for acute cardiac medicine.
The Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care's goal is to reduce mortality from heart attacks by teaching the public to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a heart attack and to reduce the time that it takes to receive treatment.
