Heart attack treatment center

When the blood vessels leading to the heart are blocked, less blood and oxygen are able to reach the heart muscle. When the heart muscle is deprived of oxygen, chest pain and/or a heart attack, may result.

Heart attack symptoms may vary, especially between men and women, but can include:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Cold sweat
  • Palpitations
  • Appearing pale

As an American College of Cardiology Accredited Chest Pain Center, we are committed to delivering high-quality care for patients experiencing a heart attack.

Stroke symptoms and care

Stroke is a type of cardiovascular disease affecting the arteries leading to and within the brain. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is blocked by a clot or burst. When that happens, part of the brain cannot receive the blood and oxygen it needs, and, as a result, begins to die.

The faster the symptoms of a stroke are recognized and care is received, the more likely a patient is to have a full recovery.

Call 911 immediately if you or someone you love experiences any of these symptoms of stroke:

  • Numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Severe headache with no known cause

TriStar Hendersonville is certified as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission, which means we deliver exceptional outcomes with our stroke care.
