There are three types of designations for Chest Pain Center v6 Accreditation each based on a facility's STEMI treatment capabilities and strategies:

  • Chest Pain Center
  • Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI
  • Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI & Resuscitation

Chest Pain Center v6 Accreditation builds upon previous versions of Chest Pain Center Accreditation — combining quality initiatives, current ACC/AHA guidelines, and clinical best-practices to produce the most robust delivery model for LOW-RISK, NSTE-ACS, STEMI and Resuscitation. CPC Accreditation applies a holistic approach to CV care — one that is designed to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease on patients as well as on the hospitals and clinicians that assess, treat, and manage the CV population.
