February is Heart Month, so it’s the perfect time to take care of yourself and get a heart screening! Mercy is one of only a few hospitals in Illinois to offer the latest non-invasive cardiac screening. It’s completely painless, and it only takes a few minutes. They use the latest technology in diagnostic imaging to take pictures of your heart so doctors can see whether you have blockages that put you at risk for a heart attack.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, and early detection is the key to successfully treating it. That’s why Mercy offers customized heart screenings to people of all ages to assess their individual risk. 

In the case of heart disease, knowing really is half the battle. Once you know what your risks are, you can do something about it. So, if you don’t already know your risks, talk to your doctor, get a checkup, and get a heart health screening. Take control of your heart health and have a heart screen with Chicago’s Heart Hospital—Mercy.
