Heart Disease and the Increased Risk of
Re-hospitalization

Heart failure, Atrial Fibrillation and hypertension are chronic conditions, but treatment can help reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Heart disease can’t be cured, but lifestyle changes and treatment can help you feel better, stay more active and slow the progress of the disease. (American Heart Association, 2016)

  • Heart disease is the # 1 cause of hospitalizations in the United States for persons over 65 years of age.
