Good Samaritan Hospital's Campaign for Cardiology
The Campaign for Cardiology needs you…and you may need the campaign for cardiology.
According to the Centers for Disease control and Prevention (CDC), about half of all Americans (49%) have at least one of three main risk factors for heart disease (high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol or smoking).
- -Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women
- -Someone in the United States has a heart attack every 34 seconds
The CDC also reports that atrial fibrillation – a condition treated in the Good Samaritan Hospital’s EP Lab – is the most common type of arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm).
Good Samaritan Hospital has a tradition of caring and an ongoing commitment to provide unparalleled clinical care to patients. With more than 25 years of distinguished service, the Heart & Vascular Center, under the direction of its Director, Dr. David S. Cannom, has gained a worldwide reputation not only for outstanding care but for innovative research and the development of breakthrough procedures.
The new Campaign for Cardiology – beginning in 2014 – will raise $7 million for the construction and equipment of two new electrophysiology laboratories (EP Labs).
Great physicians and researchers – and their patients – require and deserve the best equipment possible.
Your gift to the Cardiology Campaign is an investment in your own health as well as a gift of life for others.
