Education and Support

The heart is an amazing organ that continuously pumps blood to nourish and provide energy to the body. It works ceaselessly, beating about 3 billion times during an average lifetime. The heart is a very complicated organ, but taking care of it can be simple.

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack or Cardiac Arrest

Not all heart attacks are the same. Some are sudden and dramatic, and leave no doubt that the victim is in trouble. Other heart attacks are subtle and quiet, with little or no pain. Both can cause a lot of damage. Would you recognize a heart attack? Learn how.

Heart Support Groups

You may benefit from sharing your experiences, support, and knowledge with other people living with heart disease.

Cardiac Rehab

In addition to helping heart patients adapt to a new lifestyle after surgery or a cardiac event, our cardiac rehab program gives patients psychological and educational support. The program offers ongoing education about topics such as diet, medications, new cardiac technology, and coping skills for dealing with a new cardiac diagnosis. The group of longtime patients, some of whom may be attending for many years, become like a family, supporting each other, planning outings, and forming lifelong friendships.
