Heart disease is the number one killer of women. It kills more women than cancer. 1 out 5 women die from heart disease. Because of this impact the Norton Heart & Vascular Institute Women’s Heart Program provides specialized care for women’s heart health.
A woman or someone assigned female at birth who has a heart attack is more likely to die than a man. Survivors are at a higher risk of having a second heart attack within a year.
Many women go through pregnancy. Due to the growth of their baby, their body is under tremendous stress. A mother’s heart condition often determines whether she can go through the pregnancy and delivery safely. As a result, cardiovascular diseases account for over a quarter of the pregnancy associated maternal death. Shockingly, maternal mortality keeps rising. In 2021, USA had over 1200 losses of young women’s lives (32.9 death in 100,000 live births)!
Norton Heart & Vascular Institute Women’s Heart Program focuses on the latest in women’s heart health and provides specialized care to support of women at risk for cardiovascular disease.
“Women’s heart conditions are often underdiagnosed and undertreated. Our team is dedicated to improving women’s heart health— especially around pregnancy. Healthier women mean healthier families and a healthier community.”
