I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
February is Heart Month, and Texas Health Resources is offering a new resource to help businesses and employees alike understand heart health and how to prevent or manage heart disease.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, affecting more than 80 million Americans.* It was projected to cost our nation’s economy $316.4 billion in 2010 alone.**
TexasHealth.org/Heart is a comprehensive website devoted to helping you keep your heart healthy. Check out the site and find helpful tools like a recipe finder stocked with heart-healthy recipes and cooking videos. Order our Healthy Heart Kit or visit our inspirational blog. Even find a cardiologist or schedule a vascular screening.
If you have already experienced a heart or vascular event, TexasHealth.org/Heart offers a wealth of information about diagnoses, treatments, and leading edge care available right here in North Texas. If you are interested in learning more about heart health and preventing heart disease, TexasHealth.org/Heart can help you understand your risk factors and keep you informed.
At Texas Health, we know that experience matters. We care for more hearts than any other health care system in North Texas. We are proud to offer this new resource, and we hope it does your heart good.
For Texas Health Resources and its faith-based family of hospitals, Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist, and Texas Health Arlington Memorial, I’m Doug Hawthorne.
