Caring for Your Heart
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death and disability in the United States. Almost 1 million people die from it each year. It causes almost twice as many deaths as cancer. Yet, deaths from cardiovascular disease are declining. This has led to the huge increases in life expectancy since the 1940s.
In large part, more people are surviving cardiovascular disease because of the new technology and treatment available at St. James Healthcare.
