Specialized Services

STAT Heart Program

Harrisburg Medical Center has developed protocols, in association with the STAT heart program through the Prairie Heart Group and Memorial Hospital of Carbondale, in order to ensure that patients suffering from certain types of heart attacks receive interventional therapy within 90 minutes.

Stroke Program

Harrisburg Medical Center’s Stroke Program is affiliated with St. Louis University Hospital’s (SLUH) Stroke Program. Our physicians have access to proven SLUH neurologists who are on call 24 hours a day, 7 day a week to discuss patient care. We are also able to transmit CT scans to these neurologists and have an agreement to transport our patients to SLUH for additional treatment options, if necessary.

Hospitalist Program

Focused solely on hospital patients, our hospitalists review lab results and are available to interact with a patient’s family regarding the patient’s health status and other information. In addition, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the Hospitalist Program are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help solve challenges as they arise.
