Women's Heart Care

During a heart attack, heart muscle is lost by the minute. If blood is not restored to the heart quickly, it can lead to irreversible damage to the heart. Limiting such damage requires quickly opening the blocked coronary artery to restore the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the cells of the heart muscle.

That’s when Tanner’s full continuum of world-class heart care—including 24-hour emergency departments at three hospitals, a Heart Alert system, and the expert staff and technology of Tanner Heart and Vascular Center in Carrollton and Villa Rica—truly makes a real difference.

At Tanner, we save women's hearts and change your lives every day.

Women's Heart Attack Symptoms

Women often describe heart attack symptoms differently than men. Please take the time to learn the symptoms if you don't know them. Plus, download the symptoms of a heart attack as a flyer that you can hand out or post in your office, church or meeting center.

Tanner's accredited Chest Pain Centers in Carrollton and Villa Rica enable you to receive lifesaving heart care fast, providing the advanced care you need to assess, diagnose and treat anyone experiencing chest pain.

By calling 911, you can begin receiving care right away. Diagnostics in the ambulance ensure that a team of heart specialists are ready when you arrive, expediting your care.

And with angioplasty and stenting services available at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica, the lifesaving care once exclusively available in larger cities is now available right here at home.
