Women & Heart Disease
The signs and symptoms of heart disease can be different for women. It's important to know your cholesterol breakdown, blood pressure, body mass index and blood sugar. Coronary artery disease is the number one killer of US women, claiming the lives of more than a half million women each year. More women die from heart disease than from all types of cancer combined. Cardiovascular disease kills and disables more women than men. All three Scottsdale Healthcare hospitals Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center, Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center and Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital are accredited as Certified Chest Pain Centers, recognizing the quality care provided to chest pain patients and collaboration with local emergency medical services. Chest Pain Center designation affirms that Scottsdale Healthcare has coordinated training and care between local emergency medical service providers and the hospitals emergency departments, cardiac cath labs and cardiologists in treating patients with chest pain and heart attacks.
