The Women’s Heart Program

Welcome to the Women’s Heart Program at the Strong Heart and Vascular Center. We are dedicated to promoting women’s heart health and helping women lead healthy lives. As a team of women physicians and health care providers, we understand the special needs, concerns and questions facing women today.

Prevention Is Key To Heart Health

Do you know that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability for women? But it does not need to be that way. Directed by cardiologist Gladys Velarde, M.D., the Women’s Heart Program offers comprehensive cardiovascular evaluation that focuses on the special needs of women. Our program emphasizes early detection and prevention strategies to improve women’s life-long health and well-being.

We partner with obstetricians, gynecologists, and primary care providers to offer patients comprehensive diagnostic testing and treatment. We recognize and treat the unique cardiovascular needs of women during life-stages such as childbirth and menopause.

The Latest Heart Treatments Close to Home

As part of the Strong Heart and Vascular Center, the Women’s Heart Program has access to the most comprehensive cardiovascular care in Upstate New York. We play an integral role in the development of new medications for cardiovascular health and treatment. Women who participate in major drug and device trials will have access to the newest medications and cardiac care before they become widely available.
