MetroWest Medical Center Celebrates Heart Month

Feb 2, 2023

Framingham, Mass. – As we settle into the New Year and kick off February’s Heart Health Awareness Month, it’s the perfect time to set or revisit your goals for the year. MetroWest Medical Center encourages our community to make heart health a priority.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women in America, but there are ways we can reduce or eliminate our risk of developing it, such as exercising and eating a healthy diet.

The experienced team at MetroWest Medical Center’s Heart and Vascular Services in Framingham, MA is dedicated to providing patients in MetroWest Massachusetts with comprehensive cardiac care close to home. If you have been diagnosed with a heart condition or visit our hospital for cardiac care, our comprehensive teams are prepared to take care of you. Cardiologists specialize in stroke care, cardiac catherization, heart attack care, electrophysiology diagnosis, treatment for heart rhythm disorders, and cardiovascular disease prevention and rehabilitation.

With a full range of cardiac services, from preventative care, to surgery and rehabilitation, when patients visit MetroWest Medical Center’s Heart and Vascular Services, they can rest assured their heart is in the right place.

Each year in February, we recognize Heart Health Month by focusing on ways to improve heart health and educate our community. We hope you’ll join us by visiting our website where you can find heart health resources, take a heart health quiz, learn about our full range of cardiac care and more.

You can also sign up for MetroWest Medical Center’s health tips newsletter, which will be heavily focused on heart health throughout the month of February. And take our heart health assessment.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 805,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year. The most common symptom of a heart attack for both men and women is chest pain or discomfort. However, women are more likely to have atypical symptoms. Other heart attack symptoms include, but are not limited to, tingling or discomfort in one or both arms, back, shoulder, neck or jaw, shortness of breath, cold sweat, unusual tiredness, heartburn-like feeling, nausea or vomiting, sudden dizziness, and fainting.

Heart Month represents a great time to make sure you are up to date on your health screenings. Screenings and check-ups that are often covered by insurance can alert you to health conditions that need addressing sooner rather than later. From knowing your numbers for heart health to a mammogram or colonoscopy, early detection may prevent complications down the road.
