Services » HeartSafe

Providence Medical Center, in connection with the Heart of America Metro Fire Chiefs Council, is trying to keep the Wyandotte County community HEARTSafe. HEARTSafe is a public health initiative focused on improving the chances of survival for those who experience sudden, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest or heart attack.

One of the ways the hospital is participating in the initiative is with educational events that teach hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). These events have been held at Sporting Park and the Kansas Speedway.

The initiative also educates residents about the warning signs and symptoms of a heart attack, how to reduce the risk for heart attack, how to use an automated external debrillator (AED), and when to call 911.
