Saint Mary’s Hospital GOES Red and GLOWS Red For National Wear Red Day® for Women

WATERBURY, Conn. (February 7, 2014) ─ Saint Mary’s Hospital joined hospitals across the state and the country on February 7th by participating in the American Heart Association’s 11th Annual National Wear Red Day® for Women.

Go Red for WomenPhysicians, nurses, administrators and staff were invited to wear red to work at Saint Mary’s Hospital, a five-time recipient of the American Heart Association’s Gold Award for cardiac care.

To raise even greater awareness about heart disease, Saint Mary’s is participating in the American Heart Association’s GLOW Red for Women campaign by lighting the front entrance of the hospital with red LED lights on February 7th from 4 p.m. to midnight.

This simple, yet powerful statement will aid the American Heart Association’s fight against heart disease, which is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States, and claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined.

For more than a decade, the American Heart Association has led the fight to protect women’s hearts through research and education. Millions of women are united by wearing a red dress on National Wear Red Day. Hundreds of local businesses, community groups, hospitals, towns and schools have signed up to Go Red to help raise awareness and funds to fight cardiovascular disease. In New York and Connecticut alone, the American Heart Association currently funds more than $35 million in research related to cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Go Red for Women invites women to speak up and take charge of their heart health through simple lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, eating healthier, exercising more and maintaining a healthy weight.

“Saint Mary’s Hospital is proud to support this effort, and to participate in the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines program to provide the highest quality care for our cardiac patients,” said Dr. Paul Kelly, board-certified cardiologist and Director, Cardiac Quality, at Saint Mary’s Hospital.
