Cardiac Outreach Programs

Dedicated to the Prevention of Heart Disease

HeartWhile current data indicates that the cardiac needs of minority and indigent patients in Mercer County are being met, St. Francis continues to explore opportunities to extend and improve its outreach program in the prevention of heart disease.

The St. Francis Medical Outreach Van travels to medically underserved areas of the city and county to provide primary care, including heart disease prevention through blood pressure, cardiac risk and stroke risk-factor screening, as well as healthy heart education. Since the inception of its cardiac surgical program, St. Francis has sponsored and actively supported a wide variety of health events throughout the community.

These heart disease prevention programs are designed to:

  • Provide cardiovascular education
  • Identify individuals at risk
  • Provide access to treatment for these individuals
  • Promote healthy lifestyles and disease prevention
  • Promote early detection and management of chronic cardiovascular illnesses


Since 1998, more than 24,000 area residents have benefited from these intervention/prevention outreach programs. Our physicians are committed to providing high quality health care to the community, especially to those who face barriers to healthcare access. They volunteer their time and talent at two cardiac clinics as a commitment to meeting the healthcare needs of our community.
