Exceptional Interventional Care
Sequoia Hospital provides exceptional interventional care for patients and can often prevent the need for open-heart surgery through a successful interventional procedure.
Cardiologists practicing at Sequoia are widely recognized for their preeminent development of percutaneous treatment devices for patients with coronary and peripheral artery disease. Percutaneous treatment devices are devices that use needle-puncture through the skin.
Streamlined Admission for Angina (Chest-pain)
Cardiologists and Sequoia’s emergency department work together to give chest pain patients highest priority care, with a streamlined admission process that ensures immediate attention.
Sequoia achieves the guideline of treatment in 90 minutes or less, as recommended by the American Heart Association, nearly 100% of the time.
Door-to-flow time is the time that elapses between a heart attack patient being admitted to the hospital and getting into one of our cath labs for treatment of the blocked vessel(s), usually with a stent or balloon. Sequoia's door-to-flow times are among the fastest in the state, on average 61 minutes, dramatically improving a patient’s chance of surviving a heart attack.
