Spirit of Women HeartCaring 

We have taken an extra step in caring for your heart by becoming a Spirit of Women HeartCaring Hospital.

Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death in the United States. HeartCaring® proactively addresses the growing
body of research that demonstrates an under-diagnosis women with heart baloon
of cardiovascular diseases in women.

HeartCaring creates partnerships to connect consumers with designated hospitals and clinicians committed to gender-sensitive practice for prevention, early
diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases
and conditions. 

HeartCaring Approach

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.
