Make it your New Year’s Resolution to keep an eye on your heart health. Bon Secours Hampton Roads Health System is offering a special Heart Care package for the holidays that includes screenings and a heart health consultation. The package is currently $40 off, costing just $59 for a limited time.
Screenings include a CT scan calcium scoring test, a painless X-ray test that allows physicians to see inside the arteries and check for calcified plaque.
“Calcified plaque build-up in arteries may indicate you have heart disease and an increased risk of heart attack,” says Dr. Calin Maniu, board-certified cardiologist with the Bon Secours Heart & Vascular Institute. “Your doctor may suggest the test if you have risk factors for heart disease such as family history of the disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, if you smoke or if you are overweight.”
The Heart Care package also includes an online heart risk assessment, personalized printed risk analysis results and cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure screenings. Your heart scan results will be reviewed by a cardiologist and radiologist. Within 72 hours of your heart scan, our certified health coach will contact you to go over your risk assessment results. You can also sign up to receive a quarterly newsletter on heart health events and topics.
Gift certificates for the Heart Care package are also available so you can help those close your heart take care of their hearts.
