About Us  


OUR MISSION
Dedicated to inspiring hope and improving the quality of life for heart disease patients and their families through ongoing peer-to-peer support.

OUR MEMBERS
We’re like the very people we serve – heart patients and families – sharing our experiences as we offer hope. Healthcare professionals also join our mission by providing their expertise and support.

OUR METHOD
We partner with hospitals and rehabilitation clinics to help those affected by heart disease to have a positive patient-care experience. We provide our services through visiting programs, support group meetings and educational forums.

Accredited visitors, with support of hospitals and clinics, serve heart patients by listening, sharing their experiences and empathizing with their anxieties and concerns. Heart patients and families gain hope by meeting our members, who have survived heart disease and are healthy.

After diagnosis, treatment or surgery for heart disease, patients and families have serious concerns and strong feelings – often questioning why they became ill and how to prevent future problems. Communication is key to coping. That’s why Mended Hearts of Greater Cleveland offers monthly group programs where heart patients and families can support one another.
