Providing seamless connections to appropriate care.

Referring centers are hospitals that play a vital role in STEMI and cardiac resuscitation systems of care by providing prompt diagnosis and expediting transfer of patients who require treatment they are not equipped and trained to provide.

When timely transfer to a Mission: Lifeline receiving hospital is not a viable option, such as during adverse weather conditions, referring centers are prepared to provide alternate treatments such as fibrinolytics when indicated for STEMI.
