Heart Disease remains the leading cause of death in Americans. February is American Heart Month, and to help with increasing awareness, Holy Cross Hospital is hosting free events focusing on heart topics all month. We hope you can join us!

Dinner with the Doctor: Living with Congestive Heart Failure

When your heart does not pump as well as it should, your body does not get the oxygen it needs and may result in life-threatening complications. This condition, Congestive Heart Failure, is one of the leading causes of hospitalizations in those over 60 years old. Join Cardiologist Richard A. Goldman, MD, as he discusses the causes of CHF and how to successfully manage this condition. This program will be held in the Sister Innocent Conference Center on the main Holy Cross Hospital campus.

To RSVP for this free program, call 954-351-5886.
Complimentary valet parking is available. Canned good donations are accepted.

Go Red Day raises awareness about heart disease in women. We invite you to wear red (clothes, accessories, shoes, etc.) on this day, take a photo of yourself, and then post it on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/holycrossfl with the hastag #GoRedDay or email it to us at info@holy-cross.com, and we will post it for you! Thank you for your support!

About the Center

The Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Center at Holy Cross offers the latest in high-tech cardiac care. Holy Cross was the first in Broward County to offer Induced Hypothermia, which has shown to increase the odds of surviving cardiac arrest, and has been shown to improve neurological outcomes after such an event. We were also the first in Florida to use the Prime ECG Vest which, in select patients, may give physicians additional data beyond a traditional electrocardiogram. Our outstanding cardiovascular team, utilizing cutting-edge technology, can treat any heart and vascular situation especially in an emergency.
