Lee's Summit Medical Center is an Accredited Chest Pain Center and one of the top hospitals in Kansas City for door-to-balloon time. The door-to-balloon time is the amount of time it takes from the moment the patient arrives at the door of the Emergency Department until they are in the catheterization lab and the blocked artery is open. When someone is having a heart attack, “time is muscle” – that is why so much emphasis is put on the door-to-balloon time when a person is having an ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI), a life-threatening heart attack. The national goal for door-to-balloon time is 90 minutes.
Whether you are experiencing a minor emergency or a life-threatening situation, we can provide the emergency care you need. We have convenient parking and easy access at SE Blue Parkway and SE Todd George Road.
