Practice Participates in National Wear Red Day Each Year to Prevent Heart Disease


Middletown, N.Y. – February 20, 2018 – Crystal Run Healthcare, led by its Cardiology division, held a fundraiser on Friday, February 2nd to benefit the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day. Throughout Crystal Run’s 20+ locations, providers and staff personally donated funds and wore red to help raise money and bring attention to the overwhelming statistics around heart disease and stroke, encouraging women to take action to live longer, healthier lives.  Each year on National Wear Red Day, employees have the opportunity to wear red clothing or purchase red dress pins and key chains to show their support. In total, $ 2,111.00 was donated to the American Heart Association to help fund educational programs that increase women’s awareness about their risk for heart disease and stroke, as well as encourage overall heart health.


According to the American Heart Association, heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined.  On National Wear Red Day, the first Friday in February annually, millions of individuals unite to wear red, take action, and commit to improving the health of women. Funds raised by Go Red for Women support research about cardiovascular health, a vital step in the prevention and treatment of heart disease and stroke. 


Crystal Run’s highly skilled community-based cardiologists are board certified with advanced fellowship training in Echocardiography (sonogram of the heart), Nuclear cardiology (noninvasive imaging), Adult Transthoracic and Transesophageal Echocardiography (a sonogram obtaining various views of the heart); Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, Electrophysiology (heart rhythm testing); and Interventional Cardiology (minimally invasive procedures to treat blockages to the heart). They perform both emergency and elective angioplasty, as well as other traditional and interventional cardiac procedures and offer state-of-the-art cardiac imaging in multiple locations through Orange, Sullivan and Rockland Counties.
