An Advanced Model of Care

The Allegiance Heart and Vascular Center was designed as a Cardiac Universal Bed Unit (CUB), which allows patients to remain in the same room and have the same care team for their entire stay. In addition to being more convenient for patients and their families, the CUB eliminates the physical stress of moving to various floors and promotes a consistent level of care that is proven to be safer for patients and decrease the length of their hospital stay.

The best chance of surviving a heart attack is to act quickly. Do not wait for symptoms to go away. Call 9-1-1 immediately, and chew an aspirin while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.
