Comprehensive Stroke Certified

Chest Pain Center accreditationWhen it comes to chest pain, it’s all about speed.

Hospitals see a lot of patients with chest pain - in fact it is the most common reason they come to the ER. That’s why Chesapeake Regional Medical Center established a chest pain center within its Emergency Department to ensure that patients receive fast, accurate and state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment as soon as they arrive at its doors.



We are always at the ready.


During a stroke, the sooner you get care, the better your chances of recovery. Our health care professionals are specially trained in emergency stroke care. In fact, Chesapeake Regional Healthcare is Comprehensive Stroke Certified by the Accreditation Commission of Health Care, Inc. This ACHC accreditation ensures our patients receive fast and technologically advanced stroke care from the moment they arrive at our facility. 



Through a partnership with Chesapeake ambulance services, EMS teams are able to perform EKGs in the field and send the information within seconds to the emergency department. This allows the cardiac team to be in place as soon as the patient arrives at the ER.

Once there, a highly skilled team with advanced knowledge in managing heart attacks provides rapid therapy to decide whether immediate medical treatment is warranted, further tests are needed or observation is necessary.
