The Detroit Medical Center and now DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital have a team of cardiac care experts on-site and ready before the patient arrives, treating your heart attack in half the time.

No job is more important than guarding YOUR heart. You need to know the brightest and bravest are working for you, always prepared to spot potential danger as soon as it arises and deal with it on the double.

That’s why Sinai-Grace Hospital has the country’s best cardiologists standing watch every second of every day. Constantly on call, this revolutionary team of top-flight doctors is ready to react the instant a heart attack strikes you, your family or friends.

Unfortunately, no one can predict when painful, potentially fatal heart problems might surface. At work. In your car or the gym locker room. The middle of the night. On weekends.

And a heart attack cannot wait.

That's why DMC’s SGH Cardio Team One is poised to respond with world-class speed and skill. They’re ready to hit back — hard and fast — to stop a life-threatening heart attack in its tracks. Rest assured that YOUR heart is in good hands.

On Site, not "On Call"

Most hospitals across the country strive to treat cardiac patients within 90 minutes. That's the goal. The reality, unfortunately, is often closer to 120 minutes. But those are the OLD RULES.

Cardio Team One has rewritten the rules of response time — and the results could save your life. Every tick of the clock counts when YOU or someone you love is suffering a heart attack. Lost time can mean more damage, longer recovery or even death.

The pioneering "Cardio Team One" approach to heart attacks has already begun saving the lives of patients who previously might have died by treating them in half the time of the national standard average which is 90 – 120 minutes. By keeping a specialized cardiac treatment team on site 24/7, and by streamlining tests and procedures in the ER, Cardio Team One is able to save 60 minutes of your dying heart.

A heart in crisis needs help NOW — not 90 minutes from now. Cardio Team One’s mission is to make history by helping its patients beat the odds every single minute of every single day. No other heart team anywhere in the world is constantly on site.

Because Heart Attacks Cannot Wait

The average heart attack patient isn’t treated by a cardiologist for TWO HOURS. Tragically, that’s too long. Most hospitals shoot for 90 minutes. By DMC’s standards, that’s still too long.

The solution is both elegantly simple and clinically historic. DMC’s Cardio Team One has committed unprecedented effort and resources to ensure you won’t wait in an emergency. When a heart attack hits, time is muscle. Lost minutes mean lost heart muscle, which means longer odds of survival and longer recovery time for those who do.

Cardio Team One will treat its patients in half the national average standard time. You will be in recovery by the time doctors at other hospitals are merely starting to scrub in.
