A cardiac screening & education program
Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans. In fact, heart disease affects one in three adults and most of them don't even know they have it. At the Heart Hospital of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center, we know the best way to fight heart disease is to prevent it. That's why we offer the HeartScan Package – a powerful and comprehensive screening tool that can often detect heart disease at its earliest stages. It's easy, and it's available for just $149.
