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.
Accreditations for high quality care
Methodist Richardson Medical Center has earned three prestigious honors for its cardiac care:

- American Heart Association (AHA) Mission: Lifeline® Receiving Center–SILVER Level Recognition Award, based on achievements through NCDR ACTION Registry®–GWTG™ data submitted for the 2012 calendar year.
- AHA Get With The Guidelines®–Heart Failure GOLD Achievement Award, for achieving at least 24 consecutive months of 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get With The Guidelines® heart failure achievement indicators to improve quality of patient care and outcomes.
