John Pezold's thoughts

SB 192 creates an Office of Cardiac Care under the Department of Public Health and adds a three-tier designation system cardiac care centers in ERs.
Hospitals are permitted to apply for the designation as long as the hospital demonstrates the satisfaction of the applicable criteria. A hospital seeking designation as an emergency cardiac car center may apply for a grant and provide information as the office deems necessary to determine if the hospital is eligible for such grant.
