Shop, Eat and Stay In Support of National Heart Health Awareness Month and Valley View Hospital’s New Cardiovascular Innovation & Research Institute

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (February 4, 2014) – In conjunction with February’s National Heart Health Awareness Month, the Valley View Hospital Foundation is launching the I ♥ Heart Weekend where the community can shop, eat and stay in Glenwood Springs in support of heart health Feb.7-9. 


I ♥ Heart Weekend broadens the foundation’s I ♥ Heart campaign with a goal to raise $1.5 million for the hospital’s new Cardiovascular Innovation & Research Institute.


“We are thrilled with the community’s response so far from many participating restaurants and businesses who are joining together to support the heart health of our community,” said campaign coordinator Jennifer Flentge. “It will be easy to spot participants – just look for balloons and posters which designate participating businesses and restaurants.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can find great deals, and businesses will be sharing heart health information and goodies, so stop in to show your support of the I ♥ Heart Campaign.”

Glenwood SpringsChamber of Commerce members will help kick off the weekend with the Foundation’s Business After Hours networking event on Friday, Feb. 7 at Valley View, where attendees will learn more about the heart resources available at VVH such as cardiology services, interventional procedures and cardiac rehab while having the opportunity to meet with the cardiology staff.
