In particular, heart disease has a bigger impact on minorities and those with less access to healthcare. Our commitment to diverse communities is to help improve lives, especially people negatively affected by these differences. We believe we can work together with the community to improve health disparities through early diagnosis, improving access to physicians, and community outreach programs. For heart disease, early detection is key. If you have concerns about your heart health, talk to your primary care provider or make an appointment with a cardiologist. Or schedule a simple, convenient cardiovascular screening on our Mobile Health Unit. The St. Elizabeth Heart & Vascular Institute is Greater Cincinnati’s only Cardiovascular Center of Excellence accredited by the American Heart Association. We are dedicated to better heart care for all, personalized for you. Don't Put Off the Care You Need. At St. Elizabeth, we are dedicated to you and your family, and to working together to recognize differences, address disparities, and make our community a healthier place for all.
