Mercy Emergency Chest Pain Center

Since 2003, when Mercy Emergency Chest Pain Center (ECPC) became America’s first fully accredited chest pain center, we’ve been setting national standards for rapid and efficient management of heart attacks / acute myocardial infarctions.

State-of-the-art Cardiac Catheterization Labs

  • Nation’s first fully functioning cardiac catheterization lab in an emergency department
  • Diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization lab in the Heart Hospital (third floor)
  • Bi-plane cardiac catheterization lab with the ability to perform brain intervention

Robotic, Minimally Invasive, and Standard Heart Surgery

Since performing the nation’s first cardiac catheterization in a community hospital in 1957 and Ohio’s first successful minimally invasive coronary bypass in 1996, the Heart Hospital at Mercy has remained on the leading edge of heart surgery. Today our heart center offers many of the latest, minimally invasive heart procedures, and Mercy was the first to bring robotic heart surgery to Stark County.


In 2016, our transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) program became the first in the Akron-Canton area to perform TAVR without general anesthesia, allowing us to expand our care to include certain high-risk patients who may not be eligible for TAVR elsewhere.

Heart Failure Center

The Heart Hospital Heart Failure Center manages heart failure with excellence, placing emphasis on both quantity and quality of life across the entire continuum of care.

Heart Arrhythmia Center

Advanced diagnostic and treatment options for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and troublesome atrial arrhythmias.
