Heart disease is the leading cause of death in American women, killing almost twice as many women than all forms of cancer combined. Yet most women are not aware they are at risk for developing a heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular diseases. They also have fewer of the typical heart attack symptoms found in men and may delay lifesaving treatment. Furthermore, many women tend to ignore their own health because they are so busy serving as caregivers for their families.


As a national leader in cardiac care, Allegheny General Hospital is dedicated to helping women gain a greater awareness of cardiovascular disease and teaching them the proper preventative measures to protect the health of their hearts. In response to this growing health problem, AGH has designed a distinctive facility that caters specifically to women and their unique cardiovascular needs.

Part of the Cardiovascular Institute, the Women’s Heart Center provides women with an overall assessment of their cardiovascular health. Specialists from the program use the latest technology and tools to give women a comprehensive, gender-specific action plan for preventing and treating heart disease.
