Handbook for a Healthy Heart

A Patient Guide for meeting health care challenges related to heart disease

As part of our commitment to you, we have made this booklet to provide patients and families with the basic knowledge and information about the care provided at UNC REX Healthcare. It also provides helpful information about ongoing care and lifestyle changes to prevent other heart
problems and maintain heart health.

We are ready to work with you to overcome healthcare challenges related to heart disease. Please know that our entire staff at UNC REX Healthcare is available to answer your questions, calm your fears and provide accurate and up-to-date information about your healthcare status.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask any member of your UNC REX Healthcare Team at any time.

We will coordinate your plan of care to help you maintain your best health and activity. It is important to talk with your family and friends after you leave the hospital.

We put our hearts into caring for yours. We are here to support you every beat of the way.
