Women’s Heart Program at the DeMatteis Center

Welcome from the Assistant Director
dagostino It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Women’s Heart Program at St. Francis Hospital. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive and an integrated program for management of heart disease in women.

- Madhavi Kadiyala, M.D., Assistant Director of the Women’s Heart Program

Department Overview

The Women’s Heart Program is the latest addition to the Women Center of St. Francis Hospital, an ambulatory facility located at the DeMatteis Center for Cardiac Research & Education on Northern Boulevard in Greenvale.

With the introduction of the Women’s Center in late 1997, St. Francis Hospital made a commitment to the community to provide dedicated health services for female patients in our region.

In light of this ongoing mission, we are now expanding our comprehensive approach to include cardiovascular services for women with a focus on prevention. There is increasing evidence that coronary artery disease in women is different than men with diagnostic challenges unique to women, often resulting in less than adequate treatment. The Women’s Heart Program is committed to raising awareness, providing resources to the community, and advancing research in this area.
