Englewood, CO, February 22, 2019 --(PR.com)-- HCA Healthcare/HealthONE’s Swedish Medical Center invites the community to watch their cardiologists face off against their hospital administration in a basketball game to promote heart health during American Heart Month.

“Heart disease can be prevented before it needs advanced treatment by maintaining healthy habits, like keeping a healthy weight, staying active and following a healthy diet,” said Denise Mathias, vice president of cardiovascular services at Swedish Medical Center. “Minor changes can make a big difference, which is why raising awareness is so important.”

In addition to the fun event, spectators can enjoy a halftime performance by the Englewood High School cheer team.

Tickets are $5 at the door and all proceeds will go toward the American Heart Association Heart and Stroke Walk.

The event will take place Tuesday, February 26, at 5:30 pm and will be held at Englewood High School, 3800 S. Logan St.

Parking is available at the front entrance of the school.
