Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center in Sun City West is now a designated Cardiac Receiving Center providing full emergency management services to higher risk heart attack patients.

In order to be recognized as an Arizona Cardiac Receiving Center, hospitals must meet seven specific criteria determined by Arizona Department of Health Services.

Susan Kelley, chief nursing officer for Banner Del E. Webb, said this designation is a statement of the hospital’s skilled staff in cardiac response to improve patient outcomes following resuscitation.

“I am so very proud. To provide this level of care benefits our community and assures them we can handle even the most complicated cardiac situation with expertise,” Kelley said. “It is also valuable to our Emergency Medical Service Pre-Hospital partners to know we are prepared 24/7 to receive critically ill patients.”

Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center is the sixth Banner hospital to be recognized as an Arizona Cardiac Receiving Center.

Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center specializes in orthopedic surgery, heart care, emergency care, cancer care and obstetrics.
