Education and Support to Help Our Community Stay Healthy
Suburban Hospital has made a long-term commitment to not only diagnosing and treating heart disease but also to improving cardiac health through outreach and education.
To help our community's senior residents (65 and over) remain healthy, HeartWell, which is generously funded by the Suburban Hospital Foundation, provides one-to-one patient education to improve heart health and prevent further heart disease. Nurse educators check and track blood pressure and blood sugar for participants at senior centers throughout the region. HeartWell also offers programs on nutrition, gait and balance screening and exercise classes.
Suburban Hospital also offers a wide range of public education classes and activities through WellWorks, a health and wellness outreach service. The offerings include weight management, healthy cooking and fitness courses, stress management, programs on allergies, back and spine health, managing arthritis and much more.
