Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at OhioHealth

We give you the tools you need to stay healthy or reverse a condition that threatens your heart and vascular health — from lifestyle programs to clinical preventive care.

With all of the experience we have at OhioHealth treating patients with heart and vascular disease, we’d still rather prevent it. We take a multidisciplinary approach to addressing risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and smoking — all with the goal of preventing serious illness. We also give you tools you need to stay healthy or reverse a condition that threatens your heart and vascular health.

Our Lifestyle Programs


Get moving with a comprehensive exercise program at one of our first-class fitness centers. Exercise helps greatly reduce key risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease.

Nutrition Counseling

Our registered dieticians can help you fine-tune your eating habits by teaching you healthy habits and creating a diet plan that fits your needs. Depending on your medical plan, a one-hour consultation with a nutritionist may be covered.

Tobacco Cessation

Quitting smoking alone can be hard. Our comprehensive Tobacco Cessation program helps you look at your smoking behavior, explore your reasons for quitting and develop an individualized plan to become a nonsmoker for life.

Weight Management

For people with moderate to significant weight loss needs or other health conditions, our Medical Weight Management program offers physician-guided weight loss options to help you achieve success.

Stress Management

Chronic stress can be detrimental to your health. We have programs to help you become more aware of your stressors and warning signs.

Health Risk Management

Partner with one of our health coordinators to develop a personalized, intensive, non-medical program to optimize and maintain your health and meet your goals. Your health coordinator will work closely with you and your physician to manage any medical conditions and will regularly evaluate your progress.

Clinical Prevention

For patients who don’t respond to lifestyle changes alone, OhioHealth provides preventive care and support in the clinical setting. These specialty clinics include:

Anticoagulation Clinics

Offered at several locations throughout the region, we provide comprehensive patient management, monitoring and instruction related to anticoagulation therapy (blood thinners).

Lipid Clinics

At the Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Lipid Clinic at OhioHealth McConnell Heart Health Center, we treat patients with elevated blood lipids who have been resistant to standard therapy.
