"A multidisciplinary team works together to provide the best possible care for our patients with heart attack, using nationally established guidelines to assure that we are using the best science to guide our work. In addition to the excellent care provided at HealthAlliance Hospital, our cardiologists and emergency physicians have worked closely with ambulance companies and with doctors at UMass Memorial Medical Center to assure that any patients who require immediate transfer can receive interventions effectively, promptly and safely. This is another way that HealthAlliance Hospital and the UMass Memorial work cooperatively with your best health in mind."
