The West Tennessee Heart & Vascular Center (WTHVC) at Jackson Madison County General Hospital takes care of more heart attack patients than any other hospital in Tennessee. WTHVC has achieved the highest level of PCI Accreditation from the Society of Chest Pain Centers. PCI, also known as angioplasty, is a procedure that helps to open narrowed arteries in the heart either with balloon angioplasty or stents.
More heart attack patients treated by WTHVC received PCI within 90 minutes or less after arrival than the national average. West Tennessee Heart & Vascular Center has earned exceptionally high quality ratings. The 30-day re-admission rate is much lower for both heart attacks and heart failure than the national rates.
"If you have a heart problem, I suggest you have it in Jackson, TN! Be prepared to meet a lot of amazing people, they have inspired me to live life to the fullest. With WTHVC on my side, I have lost weight, started a walking program and returned to work.
I can tell you . . . when it’s your heart, people matter."
