Women’s Heart Health Program


Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women, taking the lives of more women than all forms of cancer combined. Across the population, women are underdiagnosed with heart disease and are less likely to be offered guideline-recommended therapies compared with men. Women can also present differently than men when it comes to heart attacks. By focusing on the whole you, especially on prevention of heart disease, the Mount Carmel Women’s Heart Program strives to reduce that gender gap in diagnosis and treatment. In our modern, busy culture, self-care can be increasingly difficult to achieve; we work to empower you to take control of your heart health.

Specialized Program & Services

Through this focused and innovative program, we’re reimagining women’s cardiovascular care by highlighting and proactively managing the things that are unique and specific to women, like:

  • Informing and educating women about the seriousness of heart disease
  • Drawing special attention to specific cardiovascular needs, like timely diagnosis and guideline-directed treatment
  • Providing preventive care that goes well beyond basic risk factors

We take an integrative approach to heart care, attempting to understand and account for all the risks that may contribute to heart disease during a woman’s lifetime, from obstetric and gynecologic history, cancer history, and hormone replacement therapy to everyday issues like stress and sleep. We provide that in-depth care in a warm, inviting, female-friendly environment that’s unlike anything our community has ever experienced. The Mount Carmel Women’s Heart Program is a place where you can feel safe, comfortable, and heard when talking about your heart, your health, and anything else – without judgement – with an exceptional team of compassionate providers.
