HeartCaring® from Spirit Health Group
HeartCaring® utilizes a three-pronged approach that engages hospitals, clinicians and consumers in the early diagnosis and intervention of cardiovascular (CV) disease in women. This approach yields increased cardiovascular and clinical volumes from first-level diagnostics through treatment and interventions. HeartCaring membership provides hospitals with geographic exclusivity for the HeartCaring program with all associated branding, materials, model, and support.
The program begins with the designation of HeartCaring primary care physician practices – particularly family physicians, internists and Ob-Gyns - and hospital employees who educate women on the risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
HeartCaring provides physicians and clinicians with innovative and effective patient information, tools, programming, workbooks and clinical training for professionals on gender-sensitive evaluation and early intervention of cardiovascular disease. Membership includes unlimited support and attendance at the annual National HeartCaring Conference featuring a learning collaborative of program best practices, as well as the top thought leaders and innovators in the industry.
HeartCaring is a nationwide clinical outreach and business building program which emphasizes a gender-sensitive approach to cardiovascular disease. The program is administered by Spirit Health Group with educational support from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) The Heart Truth, the Vascular Disease Foundation, the Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) Coalition, and the Venous Disease Coalition.

Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death in the United States. HeartCaring® proactively addresses the growing body of research that demonstrates an under-diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases in women.
HeartCaring creates partnerships to connect consumers with designated hospitals and clinicians committed to gender-sensitive practice for prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases and conditions.
HeartCaring® is powered by the Spirit Health Group® and activated by U.S. Hospitals that ascribe to the highest standards of excellence in women’s health, education, and community outreach; with educational support from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) The Heart Truth, the Vascular Disease Foundation, Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) Coalition and the Venous Disease Coalition.
HeartCaring reflects the united front of hospitals, primary care physicians, other entry-point providers, cardiologists and consumers working together to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases and conditions in high-risk, under-diagnosed populations like women.
Through conversations with their primary healthcare clinician, HeartCaring inspires women to care about the leading killer of Americans: cardiovascular disease, stroke, and P.A.D. Across the country, 55 HeartCaring hospitals give women opportunities to take action for their health and facilitate patient follow-up through screenings, diagnostics, and treatment.
