The Need for Cardiac Care in our Community

Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States. Each day, within the Santa Cruz County community, 5-6 patients are treated at Dominican Hospital for cardiovascular disease. More patients than ever are requiring cardiac care and interventions on a daily basis.
