Benefiting Local Heart Care
As a Level II STEMI Center, Lake Regional Health System provides an essential service to mid-Missouri: ensuring 180,000 residents and millions of visitors have 24/7 access to lifesaving treatment for heart attacks. And because time is muscle, Lake Regional is proud to be a national leader in heart attack treatment time, delivering care faster than 9 out of 10 hospitals nationwide.*
The Lake Regional heart care team uses specialized X-ray equipment in the Cardiac Catheterization Lab to diagnose and treat patients with heart attacks, as well as heart and blood vessel disease, and to implant pacemakers, performing nearly 2,000 procedures annually.
To ensure Lake of the Ozarks-area residents and visitors continue to have access to the latest heart care technology, all proceeds from the HK's Lake of the Ozarks Open tournament will support heart care at Lake Regional Health System, including technology such as the Philips Azurion 7 Series. This industry-leading imaging equipment provides enhanced visualization for finding and treating blockages in the heart and vessels while delivering the lowest possible dose of radiation, improving safety for patients and physicians.
