Heart disease has been called the Silent Killer because it often has no noticeable symptoms. It’s more deadly than all forms of cancer combined and past research has revealed that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. To save lives and raise awareness of this serious issue, the American Heart Association launched Go Red For Women.
“Saint Thomas Health is thrilled to have the Tennessee Titans join us in helping bring heart disease to the forefront of women’s health, “ said Bernie Sherry, CEO of Saint Thomas West Hospital and Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital. “The Titans have been a long standing partner of Saint Thomas Health in helping us keep our community healthy.”
National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 7 and the Tennessee Titans and Saint Thomas Heart encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives.
Saint Thomas Heart is the cardiac division of Saint Thomas Health and includes the cardiology programs at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital, Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital and Saint Thomas West Hospital. With approximately 60 cardiac specialists in more than 25 regional clinics throughout Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky and Tennessee’s largest network of accredited Chest Pain Centers, Saint Thomas Heart offers greater access and experience, seeing more patients than anyone in Tennessee.
