Women & Heart Care

How’s your heart? Heart disease is the leading cause of death in American women. This is a surprise to most women, but knowing this fact can motivate you to learn more about your risk for heart disease.

We are here to help you understand your risk for heart disease and learn how to minimize those risks. Genesis offers the latest information on:

  • Prevention
  • Early diagnosis
  • Treatment

We feel it is so important to help women stay heart healthy that we became a Spirit of Women HeartCaring® designated hospital.

Spirit of Women HeartCaring

HeartCaring involves a three-prong approach to planning and implementation that includes hospitals, clinicians and consumers in an effort to increase gender-sensitive heart disease awareness.

The need for a gender-sensitive approach to cardiology is underscored by the growing body of research that reveals an under-diagnosis of heart disease in women, as well as variations in clinical indicators, symptoms and treatment regimens.

HeartCaring is administered by the Spirit of Women Hospital Network with educational support from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
