St. James hospitals accredited by society
Franciscan St. James Health said its Chicago Heights and Olympia Fields campuses have received accreditation from the Society of Chest Pain Centers, meaning the hospitals have achieved a higher level of expertise in treating patients who arrive experiencing symptoms of a heart attack.
To become accredited, the hospitals underwent a rigorous evaluation by the SCPC for their ability to assess, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack, Franciscan St. James said.
