The American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association recently released new clinical practice guidelines covering four important areas that impact heart health: lifestyle, cholesterol, obesity and risk assessment. These revised guidelines are designed to help primary health care providers better identify adults who may be at high risk for heart disease.
In honor of Presidents Day this month, we've asked MultiCare's health experts to look back at the ailments of past U.S. presidents, then offer their perspective on how these conditions might be treated differently today. President Woodrow Wilson's stroke in 1919 is the first in our series, "Presidential Maladies."
“With stroke, the thing that everybody fears is a disability,” said Karen Kiesz, Stroke Program Coordinator at MultiCare Tacoma General Hospital and Allenmore Hospital. “If we can minimize the effects of stroke and make a difference with our treatment, then that’s really the driving force behind our program.”
As part of a statewide program to create an emergency cardiac and stroke system, MultiCare's adult hospitals received their categories this week.
MultiCare leaders decided they wanted the health system to play an increasing role in advancing medicine. In 2010, they opened the MultiCare Research Institute in Tacoma. Program Director Richard Shine recently discussed the new program.
