Buffalo General Medical Center, a HeartCaring® hospital in Western New York, is committed to excellence in women’s heart health and to becoming your primary resource for all information, education, diagnostics and treatment to help you and your family stay heart healthy.
HeartCaring, a national program powered by Spirit Health Group®, is activated and utilized by U.S. hospitals that ascribe to the highest standards of excellence in women’s health, education and community outreach. HeartCaring has educational support from:
- The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI)
- The Heart Truth, The Bristol-Myers Squibb/Sanofi Pharmaceuticals Partnership
- The Vascular Disease Foundation
- The Venous Disease Coalition
Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death in the United States, and Buffalo General has joined HeartCaring to proactively address the growing body of research that demonstrates an under-diagnosis of cardiovascular disease in women.
Despite treatment and diagnostic advances, there is a need for healthcare systems and clinicians to better understand gender variations in symptoms of cardiovascular diseases and conditions such as peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.) and stroke. ;HeartCaring addresses these gaps by providing clinician education and opportunities for women to take action on their health.
The more than 600 actively participating HeartCaring physicians have committed to receive gender-sensitive education about symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease, P.A.D., and stroke in women. They in turn provide patients with educational tools, such as an interactive workbook, encouraging female patients to make positive, healthy choices to prevent cardiovascular disease.
