We Help You Keep Your Heart Healthy
NYC Health + Hospitals knows that excellent heart health is often within your total control. We carefully evaluate our patients’ heart health and then offer patient education on lifestyle changes and medications to keep you healthy, active and feeling great, because we care about keeping all New Yorkers heart conscious.
The American Heart Association recommends heart-health monitoring prevention early in life. This means working with your wellness team at NYC Health + Hospitals to keep your risk factors for heart disease low.
Heart disease may include coronary artery disease, problems with heart rhythm, heart defects you may have been born with or other illnesses. Many are almost entirely preventable with lifestyle changes and with medications designed to lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Surgical options are also available when needed.
Best of all, we’re in every borough, so helping you stay well and feeling your best is convenient. We have appointments and extended hours that fit your busy schedule, with a full wellness team helping you from your very first visit at one of our neighborhood health centers.
