About the Cardiac Health Center

Cardiac Health CenterThe Cardiac Health Center is an education and training facility developed by New York Hospital Queens. It was created especially for people who have had a heart attack, heart surgery, balloon angioplasty, or angina, and was designed to improve health status and reduce the potential for future cardiac events among all at risk.

The Center's program is recommended for people with a high-risk profile for heart disease, as well as those with known heart disease who want to improve their cardiovascular health. The Center's goal is to understand and support patients while helping them regain the confidence needed to return to excellent physical health after a cardiac event.

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 cause of disability and death. Early detection and early treatement is the most important way to manage cardiovascular disease. Studies show that a high majority of individuals can remain heart healthy by following a proper diet and exercise program, along with a routine health care plan and the elimination of tobacco products. The Cardiac Health Center's education programs in nutrition and exercise can help many individuals make the lifestyle changes they need for a heart healthy future.
