Heart LifeLine AllianceSM

Heart LifeLine Alliance was developed in 2008 by the cardiologists at Missouri Baptist Medical Center in partnership with rural hospitals, medical helicopter and ambulance services.  In 2010, Missouri Baptist began a partnership with local emergency services to notify the Cath Lab of a patient's arrival so the lab can be prepared.  With one phone call, patients who are having an acute heart attack, known as ST-elevated myocardial infarctions (STEMI), are transferred by helicopter or ambulance to the 24/7 Cath Labs at Missouri Baptist where they can receive lifesaving treatment. 

Simply: People in outlying and rural communities deserve the same level of care available to people who live near a major medical center. Research suggests that opening up a heart-attack-causing blockage with an angioplasty balloon and a stent yields better results than clot-busting drugs. Proponents believe the approach reduces the long-term health affects of a heart attack and actually saves money in long-term care costs.

Since 2008, more than 500 patients have benefited from Heart LifeLine Alliance Program.

To learn more about our outstanding clinical outcomes, please contact our program coordinator, Annette Casey, RN, at 314-996-5600.
