Women's Heart Care

Saint Luke's Muriel I. Kauffman Women’s Heart Center:

  • Specializes in heart screenings, risk assessments, and education with a preventive focus
  • Educates women using the most current preventive strategies
  • Has served more than 100,000 women since its founding in 1994

The center offers the latest state-of-the-art heart care for women by utilizing a multidisciplinary researched-based approach. 

A special thank you to the Former First Lady Laura W. Bush for her ongoing commitment to raise awareness about the #1 health threat of women –  heart disease – and being our keynote speaker at the recent Reflections In Red event at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Also, a warm thank you to our patients, for their courage and willingness to advocate for the hearts of women by sharing their stories and participating in our red dress fashion show.

A specialized focus

Our cardiologists collaborate with other medical subspecialties to facilitate care related to cardiovascular disorders more unique to women. They recognize that cardiovascular disease in women extends beyond heart attack and stroke.

Saint Luke's women's heart center was renamed in 2004 after a substantial gift from Kansas City philanthropist Julia Irene Kauffman. The Muriel I. Kauffman Women's Heart Center—named for Kauffman's mother—empowers women to be proactive about their heart health.

Leading the way in women's heart health

In 2010, the new Muriel I. Kauffman Women's Heart Center was unveiled at Saint Luke's Hospital. The new facility provides additional space that allows the program to expand services, including community health programs, cooking classes, and more.

Saint Luke's women's heart care team is led by two cardiovascular nurses and seven cardiologists:
