If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. This age-old saying seems to fit just fine in many instances. Yet, when it comes to the health and well-being of your heart, it’s a different matter altogether.
While it’s up to you to do your part to take care of your heart on a day-to-day basis, it’s good to know the Heart Hospital at Saint Francis is there in the event of serious heart disease.
Heart disease is the number one killer in the U.S., as well as a major cause of disability. There are many different forms of heart disease, the most common cause being blockage or narrowing of the coronary arteries, (the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself). This is called coronary artery disease and happens slowly over time. It's the major reason people have heart attacks. Other types of heart problems may happen to the valves in the heart, or the heart may not pump well and result in heart failure.
The long and short of it is simple: There is really nothing as important as cardiovascular care. That’s why it is imperative that your heart receives the care it so richly deserves. That’s also why the physicians and staff members at the Heart Hospital at Saint Francis are dedicated to taking excellent care of your heart.
In all we do, we strive to provide the highest level of professional integrity and excellence in caring for patients with known or suspected heart disease, with the goal of optimizing cardiac health and well-being.
