Women's Cardiac Center
At Orlando Health, we help women take control of their lives with health screenings, educational programs and personal support.
When it comes to heart disease and heart attacks, men are traditionally in the headlines more than women. However, women are not in the clear. It's true that before menopause women are somewhat protected, thanks to estrogen, but once menopause arrives and estrogen levels decline, women's risk slowly rises. Women are six times more likely to die of heart disease than breast cancer. In fact, heart disease is the number one killer of women, claiming more than 500,000 lives a year. And another 8 million live daily with the disease.
The Women's Cardiac Center, part of the Orlando Health Heart Institute, is working hard to change these staggering statistics. By educating women about heart disease and heart attacks, together we can save thousands of lives every year.
Services offered at the Women's Cardiac Center include screenings for heart disease and depression, nutritional counseling, and programs to help women with weight reduction and smoking cessation. Contact us today to start taking control of your health.
