But you can be assured the Genesys Heart Institute has the specialists with the expertise to help you fight this disease. The Genesys Heart Institute has been designated as a “Cardiac Center of Excellence” by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Cardiac centers of excellence must demonstrate competence in a full range of heart services.

At the Paul J "Rocky" Roll Cardiac Rapid Diagnostic Center (CRDC) your care will be focused around you and your symptoms. The CRDC is the only chest pain center in the region that is accredited by the Society of Chest Pain Centers, which means that the Genesys Heart Institute meets the highest standard of care for patients with symptoms of chest pain. Genesys also is the first hospital in the region to have a 12-lead electrocardiogram (EKG) receiver. This technology allows the paramedics and ambulance personnel to send the EKG to a Genesys board certified emergency physician from your home or ambulance. Treatment plans can be put into action while you are in route to Genesys, making your chance of surviving a heart attack better than ever before.
