24/7 Emergency Cardiac Care Now Available at Saratoga Hospital  

New interventional program provides closer, lifesaving option for heart attack patients

Saratoga Hospital now offers emergency cardiac interventions 24/7 for heart attack patients. That means emergency medical services teams can save precious time by bringing heart attack patients straight to Saratoga Hospital for potentially lifesaving procedures such as coronary angioplasty and stenting.

Saratoga Hospital has provided these services since 2014, but not on an emergency basis. Instead, heart attack patients were rushed to hospitals outside Saratoga County—a trip that could delay treatment by 30 minutes or more.

Now, because of the new, emergency cardiac program, specialists are available at Saratoga Hospital around the clock to provide expert care as quickly as possible.

“Saratoga Hospital assembled the ideal combination of experience, talent and technology,” said Dr. Patrick H. McNulty, the hospital’s director of interventional cardiology. “As a result, the opportunities to be taken care of for heart attack at Saratoga Hospital are as good as anywhere in the Capital Region.”

At Saratoga Hospital, the interventional team includes three cardiologists who are members of Saratoga Hospital Medical Group and two who are on the medical staff of Saratoga Hospital’s affiliate, Albany Medical Center. The team also includes nurses and technologists with specialized cardiac-related expertise. Many received their training at Albany Med, which is nationally recognized for cardiac care.

If you think you are having a heart attack-- call 911!

You should NOT try to drive yourself or have someone else drive you to the hospital.
