Happy National Heart Month! Dr. Stuart Zarich, Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at Bridgeport Hospital advises, “Chronic stress doubles your risk of heart disease.  So connect with friends and family, laugh more, get creative, get proper rest, and try meditation, yoga or other stress reduction techniques.”

Philanthropy is crucial to the support of our cardiac services, like the Elizabeth M. Pfriem Hybrid Operating Room, funded by donors, that has provided successful minimally invasive cardiovascular TAVR surgery to over 100 high risk patients since its opening in mid 2017.
