Mended Hearts Chapter 200

Chapter 200 of Mended Hearts was founded in 1988. They currently have over 200 members of which 35 are accredited Patient Visitors. Each Visitor is a former open heart surgery patient. The Visitors perform Pre-Operation and Post-Operation visits to open heart surgery patients and their families at Fairfax Hospital’s Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, Virginia Hospital Center, and Inova Alexandria Hospital. They perform about 3,000 in-hospital visits per year. During the first Post-Operation visit, the patient is provided with a Cough Pillow and a Mended Hearts HeartGuid.  We know their fears, anxieties, and uncertainties they face and share our experiences and insights in order to support their recovery and rehabilitation.
