Heart attack and stroke services 

Heart attack and stroke patients often receive emergency treatment in our ER before being transferred by ambulance to an HCA Corpus Christi Medical Center hospital for ongoing treatment. Having this care available closer to home is critical, because every minute delay in treatment can mean the death of a heart or brain tissue.

This allows us to act immediately on appropriate treatments.
