Community Programs

Another powerful weapon in the fight against heart disease is giving people, young and old, the tools and knowledge needed to help make smart lifestyle choices, including recognizing symptoms of heart disease.

Good Samaritan Hospital’s Cardiac Outreach Department works in partnership with local and national organizations, including the American Heart Association, to educate the public on the risks of heart disease through support groups, smoking cessation programs, free screenings, seminars and health fairs. The department also teaches cardiac patients about their condition, so they can live full, healthy lives. It all starts with having the right resources.
