Our Heart Team Fights a Killer
According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one cause of death in America. In fact, 50% of women in the U.S. suffer from heart disease, and many don’t even know they have it. Fortunately, some forms of heart disease are preventable, and a heart-healthy diet, regular exercise and avoiding smoking can go a long way to help prevent the disease.
At Saint Agnes Hospital, the acclaimed Cardiovascular Institute is an example of healthcare experts tackling this knowledge vacuum and furthering the hospital’s leadership in cardiovascular care with new comprehensive services and programs.
Our cardiovascular team is among the best in Maryland at rapidly treating cardiac and vascular emergencies as well as more subtle diseases that develop over time, such as arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, varicose veins and other venous diseases. Most importantly, all of our physicians are deeply committed to a multidisciplinary approach to determine the most effective treatment for each individual patient.
