Prompt intervention is essential in a cardiac emergency. Every second counts. If you have chest pain, go immediately to the Emergency Department at San Angelo Community Medical Center. At the Emergency Department, trained specialists will quickly evaluate your situation. If you are having a heart attack you will have the complete resources of the Cardiology Department available to treat your situation.
