MN Level One Heart Attack Center in the WSJ

From the Wall Street Journal

Mr. Femling was treated under an initiative introduced by cardiologists at Minneapolis Heart Institute to improve heart-attack care. Since 2003, the Minneapolis cardiologists have treated more than 1,200 patients who were transferred to the city's Abbott Northwestern Hospital via ambulance or helicopter from 31 community hospitals as far as 210 miles away. The strategy is patterned after trauma centers that handle victims of car crashes and gunshot wounds.
