Welcome to ACI Heart Net
The global pandemic of COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the world and nationally with many lives lost and many persons made seriously ill. However, do you know that we were already in the midst of another global epidemic before COVID-19 arrived? An epidemic that, according to the WHO and PAHO statistics, will claim greater than five times the number of lives both globally and nationally than COVID-19 will at its worst in 2021. In addition, while COVID-19 causes mostly temporary illness in its survivors, this other disease causes permanent debilitating consequences in many of its survivors. I am referring to Heart and Cardiovascular Disease.
Think about it, with these grave statistics the epidemic of heart disease clearly should get even more attention than COVID-19. But while COVID-19 has brought the world and our country to its knees, we continue to largely passively accept the much greater threat posed by heart disease. To make matters worse, many persons have in fact neglected their heart health over the last 18 months out of fear of COVID-19 which will only worsen the impact of this disease.
At Advanced Cardiovascular Institute, we have a passion for caring for the heart health of our nation. We are the pioneers in advanced private heart care in Trinidad and Tobago since 1998 and more information on our company can be found here. Given the current grave situation outlined above, we want to do our part in increasing the awareness of prevention and early treatment of heart disease and making world class Heart Care more accessible to a population already suffering through a pandemic. We recognize that there are two elements to this – one is enhanced patient education, and the other is financial assistance in a depressed economy. As such we have created a special program to address these two areas which will work as a value-added optional benefit to your current health plan.
We have called this special program the ACI Heart Net – A Safety Net for your Heart. The features of the program include the following value-added benefits:
