Mesa’s Mountain Vista Medical Center has earned a Cardiac Receiving Center Designation from the Arizona Department of Health Services.

The designation identifies facilities that provide advanced care to cardiac arrest patients who survive initial resuscitation. In addition to meeting comprehensive standards, one of the key components of a Cardiac Receiving Center is mild therapeutic hypothermia (cooling) — a therapy that reduces the chance of lasting brain damage following cardiac arrest. This therapy has resulted in dramatic improvements both in survival rates and neurological outcomes.
