Heart Attack Care - Bronson Battle Creek Hospital - Bronson Healthcare

A heart attack happens when one of the heart’s arteries becomes blocked. The supply of blood and oxygen to part of the heart muscle is slowed or stopped. When the heart muscle does not get the oxygen and nutrients it needs, the affected heart tissue may die. These measures show how well Bronson Battle Creek Hospital follows standards of care for adults who have had a heart attack.
