Caring for Families
Although hypertrophic cardiomyopathy affects 1 in 500 individuals, making HCM a common occurrence, it is often unrecognized and misdiagnosed. An evaluation by an experienced, knowledgeable team is critical to managing this complex disease. The specialized cardiologists and nurses at the Gregory M. Hirsch Center are trained to recognize the subtleties of HCM.
Knowledge is a key component in managing and living with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The Gregory M. Hirsch Center is dedicated to education, not only for the patient and family, but for the lay and professional community as well.
Education is our primary focus
