Southampton Hospital organized an outreach campaign in February as part of a wider effort by the American Heart Association to increase awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of both men and women in the United States.

The campaign peaked on Valentine’s Day when Hospital employees dressed in red and held an open house with free heart health screenings, healthy food samples, and information about improving heart health.

A donation of more than $400 was presented to the American Heart Association, representing proceeds from the sale of red dress pins and paper hearts displayed in the cafeteria.
