Research shows that the difference between women and men when it comes to heart health are often under-recognized, placing women at increased risk. In response, Shiloh Health Centers is launching a Women’s Health Program. The program will be part of the CardioVascular Institute (CVI) at Shiloh Health Centers.
Program services, provided by a growing team of cardiologists SHC in Tampa and additional offices in the Tampa bay area, include the following:
Evaluation and management of cardiovascular risk factors in women
Treatment of heart disease in women, including coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathies, valvular heart disease, and arrhythmias
Pre-pregnancy risk evaluation and care of pregnant women with cardiac disease
Cardiovascular disease resulting from cancer treatment
Our cardiovascular specialists have addressed women’s heart needs for some time, but it has become clear that women should have more comprehensive, specialized care, which is now offered through our new program.”
While the mortality rate in men due to heart disease has been steadily declining over the past two decades, it has increased slightly for women during this time. In fact, the latest research shows that a woman dies of heart disease almost every minute in the United States.
The Women’s Cardiovascular Health Program promotes heart health by educating patients about the need for lifestyle changes, including weight control, diet, exercise, and smoking cessation.
