The American College of Cardiology designated us as an Accredited Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention). This recognition signifies our hospital's dedication to the evaluation and treatment of patients experiencing heart attacks.
Our emergency physicians and cardiologists work together to quickly diagnose and treat patients who come to the ER with heart attack symptoms.

Heart disease risk factors
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death of men and women in the U.S. Some heart disease risk factors, such as age, gender and heredity, cannot be controlled. However, several risk factors can be managed to lower a person's risk of developing heart disease, such as:
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Tobacco usage
Our physicians are available to help you manage your risk factors and reduce your chances of developing heart disease.
Heart screening and imaging
We use a range of heart screening and imaging tests to diagnose heart disease. These tests help us better understand a patient's heart health and determine what type of treatment may be needed. When detected early, our cardiologists can help patients manage or even eliminate heart disease.
Heart arrhythmia treatment
From diagnosis to treatment, we provide comprehensive care for patients with heart arrhythmias, also called irregular heartbeats. The electrophysiologist in our Cardiac Catheterization (Cath) Lab is specially equipped with heart mapping technology for the following procedures:
- Catheter ablation
- Electrophysiology study (EPS)
- Pacemaker and defibrillator implantation
- Programmed electric stimulation (PES)
Heart and vascular surgery
When heart and vascular surgery in necessary, trust the cardiovascular surgeons at Capital Regional Medical Center. Our experienced, board-certified surgeons use surgical interventions, such as coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or valve repair surgery, to treat patients with advanced heart disease. We offer advanced facilities, comfortable patient rooms and cardiac rehabilitation programs to ensure our patients have access to all the resources needed for a healthy recovery.
We offer inpatient and outpatient cardiac rehabilitation programs to help patients recover from surgery and manage medical conditions. Our programs involve individualized treatment plans, which may include education, nutrition counseling, monitored exercise and physical therapy.
Many patients begin cardiac rehabilitation with our inpatient phase one program and continue to the outpatient phase two program after they are discharged from the hospital. However, some patients only attend the outpatient program, also known as "Heart Wellness." At every step of the recovery process, we help patients gradually and safely resume physical activity.
Our phase two outpatient cardiac rehab program takes place in weekly sessions. Sessions are available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Additional sessions are available upon request.
