Cardiac Outreach Program
Welcome from the Director
I’m pleased to welcome you to the Outreach Program at St. Francis Hospital. We pride ourselves on providing high quality, dignified care to those who would otherwise not be able to access the health care system.
Our goal is to provide the best care possible to everyone and to educate the public about the prevention of heart disease. Please take the opportunity to go through the links on this page for further information.
Cardiac Outreach Program - An Overview
Since 1989, our program has been dedicated to this mission. We specialize in risk factor assessment and the early detection of heart disease in underserved communities where patients may not have access to care.
We also seek to educate communities through literature and referrals to community health programs.
