Heart Fitness for Both Men and Women
The best way to live a healthy life is with the knowledge and reassurance about how to obtain and maintain a healthy heart. To make that easier, Southwest General offers to those aged 18 and older two programs called "Healthy Heart for Her” and “Healthy Heart for Him.”
We urge you to take control of your heart health, and become armed with information.
Programs for Men and Women with the Same Healthy Heart Goals
Now is the time to take an interest in your heart health. Southwest General’s Healthy Heart Program is for those men and women interested in improving their heart health as a way to improve their overall fitness. Featuring two separate programs, one for men and one for women, the programs will help them to:
Learn about their laboratory test results for cholesterol and blood sugar (glucose)
Have a screening for Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure and heart rate
Have stress and risk assessments performed
Have a complete 12-lead EKG
One of the best ways to live a healthy life is to know the factors that impact heart health and to understand how to obtain and maintain heart health. This is especially important for women since cardiovascular disease is this group’s number one killer and as such, has become a greater threat than breast cancer.
Heart disease is the leading killer of American men. Nearly five million men have a past medical history of a heart attack, and this year, more than 500,000 of them will have a heart attack. After age 40, men have a 49 percent lifetime risk of coronary heart disease, including heart attacks and chest pain. Millions more are affected by other cardiovascular disease.
Professionals Committed to Helping Healthy Heart Participants Achieve Their Goals
Cardiopulmonary Specialists are ready to help both women and men with private one-on-one consultations. During these consultations, these highly qualified health care professionals will discuss all laboratory, screening, assessment and EKG results in a frank and compassionate manner. Appointment dates and times are very flexible.
We Look Forward to Helping You
There is a one-time, out-of-pocket fee of $30 for the program.
