Mon Health Medical Center Celebrates Heart Month This February

Posted Date: 1/31/2024
Mon Health System is celebrating “Heart Month” throughout February and highlighting its nationally recognized and accredited Heart & Vascular Center which serves patients across the state of West Virginia. Keeping with the theme of the month, Mon Health Medical Center is also offering heart-healthy initiatives for patients and staff. 

“At Mon Health Medical Center, we are dedicated to providing the best heart care for the communities we serve, and as a part of that effort, we strive to provide quality programs and events that enhance the health of our patients and staff,” said Dr. Krystal Atkinson, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Nursing Officer of Mon Health Medical Center and Chief Nursing Executive of Mon Health System. “We are proud to offer each of these heart-healthy initiatives throughout Heart Month and take this opportunity to provide education and awareness about the prevalence of heart issues in the state.”

On Friday, Feb. 2, the Mon Health Medical Center Foundation is hosting a “Go Red for Women Breakfast” to celebrate National Wear Red Day. Employees will wear red and gather to raise awareness about heart disease as the leading cause of death among women in West Virginia.

Mon Health Medical Center’s cafeteria is offering an exclusive Heart Month menu throughout February with plenty of heart-healthy options with low fat and low sugar items. Additionally, the Nutrition and Dietary employees at the hospital are judging a Heart-Healthy Recipe Contest where the winning recipe will be served in the cafeteria for lunch on Feb. 29. Anyone who visits the cafeteria is welcome to enter the contest.

Mon Health System as a whole is highlighting its heart health benefits offered to all employees throughout Heart Month. As it may be difficult to get heart-healthy due to stressors like work-life balance, financials, and more, Mon Health offers an Employee Assistance Program for employees and their families, providing mental health services, professional counseling, and advising through the program. Mon Health also offers a fitness incentive program, providing discounted rates for gym memberships and compensation for exercising regularly.

Heart to heart care begins when a person walks through the doors of our facilities and spans from the cafeteria to the patient bedside as we dedicate time to educate and support our staff in their efforts in living a healthy lifestyle.
