Heart Emergencies

Crouse Health Cardiologist John Ulahanna MD

When you think it may be a heart attack, you need to be in the right place, at the most critical moment. Dial 911 and say, “Take me to Crouse.”

Why? Because during heart emergencies, you need the fastest cardiac treatment times delivered by a team with life-saving skills and exceptional expertise.

One that’s nationally recognized and locally respected for delivering the best possible care for your heart.

The Crouse Health team — comprised of our EMS (emergency medical services) partners, Emergency Department staff, board-certified cardiologists, cardiac nurses and technologists —work together with one mind to treat one heart — yours.
