Heart and Vascular Care
Heart failure is America’s silent killer, and cardiovascular diseases account for almost 900,000 deaths annually. With 6.2 million Americans currently experiencing heart failure, SSM Health hospitals and health care providers know the effect increased prevention, diagnosis, and intervention can have.
Your gift may support a diverse series of heart and vascular care programs across our SSM Health hospitals and at our 8 SSM Health heart failure clinics, including:
- Expanding patient access through cardiovascular clinical trials or more doctor-patient communication.
- Providing cutting-edge treatments, such as Barostim™ and CardioMEMS™ therapies and implants.
- Empowering our providers and clinical support staff with ongoing education and specialized certification courses.
- Helping the next generation live healthier lives by partnering with other local organizations, such as the American Heart Association and Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service.
