The Beat Goes On: Celebrating Heart Month

Heart  Month web content images

Women’s heart health is often misunderstood. Studies show that female heart disease is under-researched, under-diagnosed and under-treated. Women are 50% less likely to participate in cardiac rehabilitation following a stroke, heart attack, or heart-related surgery/procedure.

That’s why our Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program started a women’s Cardiac Rehab exercise class, that focuses on better supporting women with education and exercise specifically geared toward their needs.

Attending cardiac rehab following a heart incident reduces the rate of hospital readmission by 31% and the rate of mortality by 25% for both men and women. Individuals that attend our 24-week cardiac rehab programs experience enhanced quality of life, emotional wellbeing and functional ability.

As February is Heart Month, our team is encouraging you to keep your heart healthy by:
