Cardiovascular disease is the Number 1 killer of women over age 25 in the United States, regardless of race or ethnicity. The death rate from cardiovascular diseases has decreased among men, but continues to increase in women. 1 in 4 women have some form of cardiovascular disease and 1 in 3 American women dies from heart disease. It claims the lives of more women than all forms of cancer combined.
A women’s heart is different. At the Women’s Cardiovascular Center at Cleveland Clinic, women can get comprehensive heart care, designed to meet their unique needs. The multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians, exercise physiologists and other health-care professionals is devoted to providing excellent care to women with cardiovascular disease and to help women prevent heart disease.
