Why is heart health so important?

It’s important to monitor your health with routine physical examinations from a primary care provider, not only to detect these heart and vascular diseases, but to provide baseline information of your health before you develop such a condition. Medical management of cardiac and vascular diseases involve making important lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet, getting at least 30 minutes of exercise 5 days per week, quitting smoking, and avoiding drinking alcohol. Medication management, medical procedures, or surgery may be recommended depending on the type of heart disease you have and the extent of the damage it has caused to your body.

Our heart and vascular services are designed to deliver exceptional diagnostic, therapeutic, and supportive care to those suffering from heart, circulatory, or breathing-related challenges.
