Mended Hearts
We are proud to include the Mended Hearts program among the services available for our cardiac patients. Mended Hearts, a national nonprofit organization affiliated with the American Heart Association, has been offering the gift of hope to heart disease patients, their families and caregivers for more than 50 years. Mended Hearts is a national volunteer support group for heart patients and those that care for them.

Mended Hearts is made up of the very kinds of people it serves–heart patients, their families, and others impacted by heart disease, and its members draw on personal experience as they help others. Their mission is to “inspire hope in heart disease patients and their families.” Annually, Mended Hearts volunteers make 227,000 hospital visits to patients and 30,000 visits to family members and caregivers.

To speak to someone who has had heart surgery, contact Mended Hearts at the website link below or ask for Mended Hearts at 1-888-HEART99 (1-888-432-7899)
