More than 42 million American women are living with heart disease, the number one killer of women in the United States. While considerable progress has been made in the last decade towards reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease, women still suffer worse outcomes than men for some cardiac conditions and interventions.
Cardiovascular Care Designed for Women
Atlantic Health System Heart Care recognizes that women have specialized cardiovascular health needs. Our Women's Heart Program, available at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center, is designed to provide gender-specific care for women with known or suspected heart disease, including:
- Chest pain syndromes
- Coronary artery disease
- Valve disease, including mitral valve prolapse
The Women’s Heart Program at Morristown Medical Center doesn’t stop at medical procedures. Our hospital based physicians work with cardiology specialists in the community to offer coordinated, continuous care. We also provide a full spectrum of cardiac rehabilitation services and integrative medical approaches to lifestyle modification and risk reduction.
