February is Heart Month

The Perfect Time to Focus on Matters of the Heart

For NorthBay Healthcare, that means bringing our Heart & Vascular Center into the spotlight in this edition of Wellspring.

If 2009 was the year of building the center, then 2010 is the year it all gels. From interventional cardiac procedures to high-tech diagnostic services to open heart surgery, it can all be done right here in Solano County and in keeping with NorthBay Healthcare’s mission: Compassionate care, advanced medicine, close to home.

In this special issue, you’ll meet Norman and Jackie Gray, who have invited our readers to follow along as he recovers from triple-bypass surgery and begins his path to a healthier heart. Along the way, we’ll meet all the people that Norman met on his journey and learn about the role they play, as part of NorthBay’s Heart & Vascular Center team.

You’ll learn more about the disease itself, which is important because it is a leading cause of death in Solano County, second only to cancer. In 2007, three in 10 adults in Solano County had been diagnosed with high blood pressure and three in five were overweight, both major risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

You’ll also learn about classes, seminars and support groups, all focused on cardiac health.

It’s enough to warm your heart.
