At Northwell Health, we strive to educate our patients, their families and the communities we serve about the importance of preventing heart disease.
Northwell Health connects patients with organizations managed by peers who have experienced cardiac surgery. The following organizations are able to provide additional support:
Mended Hearts, Inc./Mended Little Hearts: a national and community based organization that provides individuals who experienced heart surgery or heart disease an opportunity to encourage and support patients with similar conditions. The Mended Heart volunteers conduct hospital visits while a patient recovers, online check-ins and additional support through phone conversations. Learn more about this organization.
WomenHeart is a national coalition for women with heart disease that provides educational information, support and additional services. Learn more about this organization.
