Heart Disease Kills

Heart disease is the nation’s number one killer, and it claims the lives of more than 4,000 men and women in New Mexico annually. However, thousands of cardiac patients and those who love them benefited last year from prevention programs, advanced diagnostic techniques and treatments received at the Heart Hospital of New Mexico.Since its founding in 1999, the Heart Hospital of New Mexico Foundation has operated in support of the Heart Hospital to fulfill its mission of promoting cardiovascular wellness throughout the region.

  • 24% of men who have heart attacks die within 1 year 24%
