The Yakima Heart Center and Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital have launched a new joint website called YakimaHeart.com. The site offers expertise on a number of cardiac issues facing our valley. It is intended to help patients better understand how treating cardiac disease can directly benefit patient’s every day lives.
Key words such as “Beat,” “Flow,” and “Recover,” highlight topics central to cardiac disease. Interactive tools engage patients with online quizzes to determine risk factors and a simple research tool to learn more about a specific diagnosis.
While both organizations still provide more detailed independent websites—available through links on the YakimaHeart.com site—the joint site represents how the Heart Center and Memorial are working together to educate patients and help reduce the incidence of heart disease in our community.
