Whether you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, at risk for cardiovascular disease, or already struggling with a condition that affects your heart, blood vessels and overall wellbeing – we can help.
As part of Utah's first and only healthcare system designated by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care with accreditations for atrial fibrillation, chest pain and heart failure, we are the place to turn for heart care in Utah County.
Heart specialists and multidisciplinary teams at Timpanogos Regional Hospital, including our on-site cardiologist, offer personalized, effective and timely treatments for these heart conditions and many others. You can count on them to help prevent, alleviate and often eliminate cardiovascular disease.
A rapidly increasing number of people live with the most common cardiac arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation. If so, you can depend on MountainStar experts to provide the right care at the right time with the goal of restoring your vitality and reducing your risk of stroke.
The most effective and potentially life-saving time to treat heart attacks is during the critical early stages. That's why our cardiac care teams aim to significantly shorten the time it takes to accurately diagnose and treat every patient who has chest pain or other heart attack symptoms.
A weak, failing heart can deprive your body and vital organs of oxygen-rich blood so we focus on managing heart failure more effectively and reducing delays in treatment. That means you can count on our specialists to help decrease or eliminate the shortness of breath, edema and fatigue that are the hallmarks of heart failure. We also offer one of only two hybrid operating rooms in Utah. The large, specially equipped surgical suite facilitates optimal patient outcomes following interventional cardiovascular and cardiac electrophysiology procedures for heart attacks, A-fib and other cardiac conditions.
The Faster. The Better.
When it comes to cardiac care, particularly during a heart attack, time and expertise matter.
- Our average door-to-balloon time is 30 minutes, well below the national standard of 90 minutes. This refers to the elapsed time from when a heart attack patient hits the door of the ER to when the catheter guide wire is inserted in the cath lab. The faster a heart attack patient receives care, the better the outcomes for the patient.
- Emergency pre-hospital12-lead EKG allows first responders to transmit patient's heart activity while in transit to Timpanogos Regional. The ER staff is better equipped with a treatment plan ready and a medical team assembled before the patient even arrives.
