SUMMIT — Five
Aurora facilities across Wisconsin, including one center in Summit,

hospitals have to meet a strict level of criteria and have proven
exceptional competency in treating patients with heart attack
symptoms. Care and treatment options must be available 24/7 and
every day of the year. Hospitals already receiving accreditation
must take part in a multifaceted clinical process that includes a
rigorous onsite review and monitoring for sustained success.

coronary syndrome patients: Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center, Aurora
Medical Center in Summit, Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha, Aurora
Lakeland Medical Center and Aurora Medical Center in Grafton.
