Cardiac Program & Women’s Cardiac Clinic

Ascension St. Mary’s has announced the establishment of a new health clinic in Saginaw providing cardiovascular care specifically for women. The goal of the clinic is to help women who are at risk, or currently have heart disease, achieve and maintain optimal heart health. The Heart Institute has designed an evaluation and care model to specifically address the unique ways heart disease presents and manifests itself in women of all ages. 

Interventional cardiologist, Dr. Nishtha Sareen, MD, MPH, FACC, will oversee Ascension St. Mary’s Women’s Heart Clinic which will provide advanced diagnostics and treatment therapies. Working together with specialists from multiple disciplines, the clinic will take into account the unique ways heart disease presents in women, including but not limited to: 

● Pregnancy-related heart health, including pregnancy complicated by a heart condition or high blood pressure and risk assessment for cardiovascular disease after delivery

● Pregnancy disorders, such as preeclampsia and gestational diabetes 

● Prevention strategies for women at high risk of developing heart disease 

● Cardio-oncology for women with cancer or those who are going through cancer treatments that affect heart health 

● Early menopause and heart disease 

● Autoimmune diseases (such as Lupus) 

● Blood lipids management 

● Diabetes related Coronary Arterial Disease (CAD)
