St. Catherine's Health Care Professionals Go Red for Women's Health
To raise awareness among local women that heart disease is their one health threat, today health care professionals at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center wore red in support of National Wear Red Day®.
National Wear Red Day® promotes the Red Dress® symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in The Heart Truth's life-saving awareness-to-action movement by putting on a favorite red dress, red shirt, or red tie.
Heart disease is the number 1 killer of American women. Unfortunately, only 56 percent of women know that heart disease is their leading cause of death and most fail to make the connection between its risk factors and their personal risk of developing heart disease.
St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center is a New York State Designated Stroke Center; recipient of the American Heart/Stroke Associations Gold Plus Award/Target Honor Roll for Stroke Excellence; received the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval and Accreditation for Disease-Specific Care for Stroke. The hospital offers two state-of-the-art Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories which provide elective and emergent angioplasty.
