The American Heart Association has awarded it the Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Silver Receiving Plus Quality Achievement Award to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. The Receiving Awards are given to hospitals that implement specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who suffer severe heart attacks.
Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital’s designation as a certified Chest Pain Center recognizes the affiliated physicians and hospital staff for meeting the Society of Chest Pain Centers’ stringent criteria for rapid response.
Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital is designated as a Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) hospital. This means all types of chest pain patients, from low-risk disorders to acute myocardial infarction, can be assessed and treated in our cardiac catheterization labs. At 90 minutes or less, the STEMI team’s fast times to PCI meet the “gold” standard for door-to-balloon times.
It all starts with preventive care. Specially-trained physicians affiliated with Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital can assess your risk for heart and vascular disease, prescribe lifestyle modifications and/or medication, perform noninvasive and invasive diagnostic tests, such as cardiac catheterization, and coordinate with other specialists for more complex care.
Other preventive programs include:
Successful treatment and survival of a heart attack requires immediate medical attention. The affiliated heart specialists utilize advanced technology to assist in providing fast, accurate diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, close to home.
Chest pain patients are screened for heart attack symptoms upon arrival to our Emergency Center and, if necessary, are transferred to our 24/7 ST-Elevated Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) STEMI cardiac catheterization lab.

Vascular and Endovascular Capabilities include:
Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital offers an array of thoracic services, from diagnostic procedures to innovative minimally invasive surgery that are shown to improve outcomes for rare and common forms of chest and lung disease.
Thoracic capabilities include:
Whether you have had a heart attack, bypass surgery, angioplasty, heart transplant or valve replacement, or have angina, congestive heart failure or any other cardiac-related illness, you may benefit from the cardiac rehabilitation program at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. Our goal is to help people with heart disease participate actively and confidently in their own recovery so they can return, as much as possible, to the life they enjoyed before heart disease.
The cardiac rehabilitation program is a three-phase, multidimensional, medically supervised program designed to help patients recover as quickly as possible from heart disease. With a comprehensive focus on exercise, education and lifestyle change, the program is designed to improve overall physical and mental functioning. Patients who participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program following heart surgery or a diagnosis of heart disease tend to have better outcomes in managing their condition.
*Physician referral is required for outpatient cardiac rehabilitation.
