 Valencia Couple Credits Henry Mayo Heart Fairs for Good Health


Don and Joann Eldart wouldn't think of missing our health fair. They both participate in all the free screenings: blood pressure monitoring; height and weight analysis; body fat analysis; oxygen saturation and carbon monoxide measurement; cholesterol test; glucose test; and stroke education. It takes about 45 minutes to complete the circuit.

 

Joann Eldart, 72, finds the healthy nutrition and diet tips very helpful in maintaining good health.

 

"We go through all the stations, cholesterol, weight, height, body mass, everything," she said. "We learn about proper eating and read all the helpful literature distributed at the fair which reinforces information we already know. We do it all."

 

"It is great both mentally and physically to attend the health fairs, "Don Eldart, 83, said. "You become more conscientious about eating and exercising. We have noticed improvements in our health since attending the health fairs. We've lowered our cholesterol."

 

"Completing the health fair screenings put you at ease and gives peace of mind." Joann Eldart said. "When you're finished you feel a great sense of accomplishment."

 



For All the Heart Beats of Your Life

Henry Mayo Expands Cardiovascular Services

 

With cardiovascular disease being the leading cause of death in the U.S., Henry Mayo is pleased to announce that expanded cardiovascular services are in place and local residents are already benefiting.

CV expansion 

While we have long been the leading provider of non-invasive medical cardiology care in our community, we now also provide interventional cardiac care such as balloon angioplasty, coronary stenting, open heart surgery and arrhythmia treatment. These are enhanced with a wide array of education on everything from diet, glucose and healthy blood pressure levels to the importance of smoking cessation and weight management. So while Henry Mayo medical staff have been dedicated to your

heart health for almost four decades, the cardiac team now includes cardiothoracic surgeons who have performed thousands of open-heart surgeries and heart valve replacements, and who have chosen Henry Mayo and our community in which to practice medicine. Not only that, our hospital's medical staff continues to attract some of the top board-certified cardiovascular specialists in the region, as well as cardiac nurses and even a cardiac rehabilitation specialist from other noteworthy heart programs.

 

HC2HCWith the mission of improving the health of our community through compassion and excellence in healthcare services, Henry Mayo now provides Santa Clarita Valley residents access to a greater range of top-notch cardiovascular services...for all the heartbeats of your life.

New Campus Signage Help Patients and Visitors Locate Vital Services

HMN Signage

Getting to the emergency room and other areas at Henry Mayo just got easier thanks to new signage that was recently installed on the hospital's campus, providing clear direction for patients, visitors and emergency personnel.

 

This is the first phase of the signage project, with more signs being added next year in the pavilion area, and ultimately the new education building and inpatient medical building once they are constructed.
