Every minute counts: Call 911
If you think you or someone you know is having a heart attack or stroke, call 911 immediately. Do not drive to the hospital.
By calling 911 at the first sign of symptoms, you buy yourself time. Plus, you give emergency medical personnel the opportunity to start care on-site and en route to the hospital.
The clock is ticking, and every minute counts. The longer you wait, the greater your risk for losing heart muscle, brain cells, and quality of life.
Methodist Charlton was presented the Platinum Performance Achievement award for excellence in heart attack care by the American Heart Association (AHA).
Dr. Jeff Butterfield, independently practicing emergency medicine specialist on the Methodist Health System medical staff, discusses when a headache or a bloody nose may be worth a trip to the emergency department, and the possible benefits of visiting the Methodist Charlton Medical Center ER, including its STEMI program for heart attack and its stroke program.
Texas law prohibits hospitals from practicing medicine. The physicians on the Methodist Health System medical staff are independent practitioners who are not employees or agents of Methodist Health System.
