Education for a Healthier Community

St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center® is a world-class leader in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. We know cardiac diagnosis and treatment can only go so far without other important health care services. That’s why we're committed to education and disease prevention. We help patients get well quickly, and stay well, for the long term.

We offer a wide range of wellness events and classes, including:

  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Cancer support
  • Emergency cardiac care courses
  • Diabetes support
  • Fitness and rehabilitation
  • Healthy eating
  • Mental health
  • Smoking cessation
  • Stroke support

Community Outreach Bus

Our community outreach bus offers free health screenings, including a brief cardiac history, blood pressure, simple blood test for cholesterol, and diabetes with the appropriate patient education and referrals needed for those over the age of 18. We provide this service free of charge at community locations.

Please call 516-629-2013 for more information.
