About HeartCaring®

HeartCaring Logo

Parkview is a nationally designated HeartCaring hospital for excellence in gender-sensitive cardiovascular care.  We are proud to be home to the area’s only HeartCaring program south of Denver and we joined this initiative because it‘s all about saving the people who are most likely to die from heart disease – people like your mom, your sister, your daughter – women. HeartCaring believes that dedicated doctors who are part of this initiative can find women at risk before it’s too late – before they develop disease that changes their lives or before it takes their lives.

Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death in the United States. HeartCaring proactively addresses the issue of under-diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases in women with the ultimate goal being to increase cardiovascular care and ensuring women receive the care they need.
