Your Heart is in Your Hands
Get in the "Spirit" with HeartCaring®
HeartCaring is a subsidiary of the Spirit of Women network. St. Francis Health certifies physicians, through the HeartCaring program, who are dedicated to gender-sensitive treatment of cardiovascular diseases and conditions. They've received female-specific education and training on the current knowledge and recommendations for preventing, diagnosing and treating heart disease in women. You might be surprised to know that heart disease is the number one cause of death among women. And since women's hearts are different from men's hearts, the treatment for heart disease is different, too.
St. Francis Health is proud to be a HeartCaring hospital, as well as an accredited Chest Pain Center.
Below are the health care providers who have received special training about current knowledge and recommendations for preventing, diagnosing and treating heart disease in women.
