Nashville, Tenn., (February 16, 2012) – Hearts with health messages and other unique heart-related reminders can be found around Centennial Medical Center during February.
The Centennial Heart & Vascular Center team is creatively communicating to employees, patients, and visitors with prevention and treatment information during national Heart Month. The team encouraged all Centennial employees to show their support for women’s heart health on National Go Red for Women day February 3. They also posted facts and healthy lifestyle tips around campus, in employee newsletters, on facility informational screens, and on the Centennial Facebook page.
“We believe in helping our patients and community live heart healthy lifestyles through awareness about prevention and the importance of seeking treatment at the earliest sign of a medical concern,” said Georgette Fedor, Administrative Director of Cardiovascular Services, Centennial Heart & Vascular Center. “We like to find fun, subtle ways during February to bring everyday ‘heart’ reminders to everyone reached through our facility.”
Heart health is important for people of all ages, regardless of gender, age, nationality, lifestyle, and other individual considerations. And heart concerns are unique to each individual.
TriStar Centennial Heart & Vascular Center, the region’s largest heart facility, was designed to provide collaborative and complete heart care among a wide range of specialties for patients with heart related health concerns and events.
“This year, we also want people to know that our heart experts are here for all their heart care needs in one location,” said Fedor. “No concern or question is ever too small. We want people to remember that seeing their doctor at the earliest sign of a problem may significantly prevent more serious long-term damage. And those with risk factors can discuss ways to prevent and screen for heart disease.”
