Sutter Memorial Hospital and Woodland Memorial Hospital have received chest pain center accreditation from the Society of Chest Pain Centers, an international organization that seeks to eliminate heart disease as the No. 1 cause of death worldwide. Mercy General Hospital has had the same accreditation since July 2009. No other local hospitals have it. The designation indicates these hospitals have a high level of expertise dealing with patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack.
