Patient Guide to Heart Disease
More than 2,200 Americans die from cardiovascular disease every day—that averages one life lost every 39 seconds, according to the American Heart Association’s 2011 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics.
Cardiovascular disease is a widespread and growing health problem in the United States —and right here in our own community—AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center has made it a priority to bring you and your family the latest advances in heart and vascular medicine.
Many forms of cardiovascular disease can be prevented by making wise choices in your daily lifestyle.
To help you understand and manage your personal risk factors for cardiovascular disease, we offer a variety of helpful health promotion resources. These include educational programs, special events, support group meetings, and health screenings that are held in the community and at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center throughout the year.
