What is Mended Hearts all about?                                 

Mended Hearts, a national nonprofit

organization affiliated with the American

College of Cardiology, has been offering the

gift of hope to heart disease patients, their

families and caregivers for more than 60

years.  Total membership is around 10,000.

Mended Hearts began in 1951 when 

Dr. Dwight Harken, Chief of Cardiothoracic

Surgery at Brigham Hospital in Boston, saw a 

need for a support group to help his patients

after they had undergone heart surgery.  The 

Greater Rochester Chapter 50 was established]in 1966.

Mended Hearts brings together patients,

spouses, family, and medical professionals to

form a network of caring individuals.

Our chapter visits over 750 patients a year

recovering from heart procedures and

surgery at both Rochester General and 

Strong Memorial Hospitals.

                

         Our Chapter offers These Benefits.

      . Meeting new people and making new friends

      . The chance to become a volunteer visitor

        at Rochester General Hospital or Strong                         Memorial Hospital.

          Cardiothoracic Surgeons, Cardiologists,

          Pharmacists, Dietitians, Cardio Rehab Nurses,
