The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus is proud to announce it has once again received the Certification for advanced Certification for Chest Pain with Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) by The American College of Cardiology (ACC).
“The Certification for Chest Pain recognizes the Sierra Campus’ commitment to provide our cardiac patients the high-quality care they deserve,” said Dr. Edward Assi, board certified interventional cardiologist and chair of cardiology for The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus. “Higher standards of care and efficient interventions provide our patients with better outcomes and improved quality of life.”
The Sierra Campus was awarded this certification after demonstrating its exceptional expertise in treating patients with heart attack symptoms and having a primary PCI available 24/7 year round to quickly provide coronary intervention.
The Chest Pain with Primary PCI Certification recognizes hospitals for their advanced standards of care in providing efficient and effective care of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients.

Anderson, chief executive officer for The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus. “The Sierra Campus is committed to improving cardiovascular care for El Paso and offering our patients the care they need close to home.”
