Women’s Heart Health Clinic
Heart Health/Cardiovascular Health

The Maritime Heart Center Women’s Heart Health Clinic (MHC-WHHC) is a specialized outpatient cardiac clinic designed for the assessment and care of female patients with a history of heart disease, and/or major risk factors for heart disease. Heart disease risk factors, symptoms and causes, although similar to men, can also be different in women, especially younger women. A physician referral is required. 

In the MHC-WHHC, patients may be seen by a team including nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals who: 

  • Perform health history and physical exam
  • Provide education about symptoms, risk factors and disease conditions.
  • Provide recommendations on how to manage, treat, and prevent further heart disease.
  • Order additional testing if necessary.
  • Work with referring doctors to establish best treatment options and follow-up.
