Women’s Cardiovascular Program

Women have specific heart health needs. Einstein's Women's Cardiovascular Program is designed to fully meet the cardiovascular care needs of women at all stages of their lives, including:

  • Risk evaluation and counseling pre-pregnancy
  • Care of pregnant women who have heart disease
  • Heart disease risk management for women in menopause
  • Care of women with cardiovascular disease that results from cancer treatment
  • Postpartum care for individuals with pre-eclampsia

Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death for women, leading to more deaths than cancer. At Einstein, we are dedicated to improving the health of women by providing specialized services that can prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease.

  • Screening for diabetes
  • Calculating body mass index (BMI)
