For Immediate Release:  August 9, 2013

AtlantiCare representatives presented an automated external defibrillator (AED) to St. Gianna Beretta Molla Parish August 4 in Northfield, on behalf of the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Heart Heroes. It was the 101st AED AtlantiCare has presented through the Heart Heroes’ Matching Funds Program since it began in 2002.

The ARMC Heart Heroes is a volunteer group that assists the Heart Institute at ARMC and AtlantiCare Foundation in raising funds to place AEDs in the community. The Heart Heroes fund a portion of the AED and community groups and/or organizations provide the remaining funds. AEDs can restore a normal heart rhythm in victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Audible and/or visual prompts guide the user through the process.

Those interested in becoming an ARMC Heart Hero volunteer should fill out a volunteer application online.
