Iredell Health Foundation will host the first Heart of Jazz

Special for the Record & Landmark

Did you know that heart disease is the second leading cause of death in Iredell County? Consider giving your local community the gift of heart health by purchasing your ticket to the Iredell Health Foundation’s first annual Heart of Jazz, benefiting the Iredell Health System’s Heart and Vascular Fund.

As the only accredited chest pain center in Statesville, the Cardiac and Vascular Center at Iredell Memorial Hospital provides the community with a full range of high-quality, personalized cardiac and vascular care. Last year alone, the center performed more than 5,000 cardiovascular procedures. In addition to the Heart & Vascular Center, Iredell Health System serves its community by providing cardiovascular services through the Iredell Vascular Clinic, Iredell Cardiology, Statesville Cardiovascular Clinic and a cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program.

To support the lifesaving efforts of cardiologists, vascular surgeons, nurses and technicians throughout the healthcare system, the Iredell Health Foundation has established the Cardiac & Vascular Care Fund. Proceeds from Heart of Jazz go to this fund.
