Ambulance initiative has goal of better outcomes for heart attacks

Email

WILLMAR -- In 90 minutes, the Willmar Ambulance Service can respond to someone having a heart attack, assess the patient, arrive at Rice Memorial Hospital's emergency room, get the patient on board a helicopter and into a cardiac catheterization lab in St. Cloud or the Twin Cities.

Officials hope to shave that time even closer with a new countywide initiative called "Saving Time and Saving Lives."
