Chest Pain Center with PCI Accreditation

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) is an international nonprofit medical society dedicated to leading the fight to eliminate heart disease as the number one cause of death worldwide, and enhancing the lives of cardiovascular patients through continuous quality improvement and patient-centered care.

Accreditation with the ACC as a Chest Pain Center with PCI (Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) is awarded to organizations who have proven exceptional competency in evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of patients with chest pain or other symptoms suggestive of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).

King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSHRC)- Riyadh has established a Chest Pain Program in 2010 to standardize the ACS patient care and to ensure 24/7 patient access to PCI as opposed to thrombolytic therapy. Since, KFSHRC have been recognized three times (2012, 2015 and 2019) as the only accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
