Our Programs & Services.
Cape Cod Mended Hearts chapter activities include monthly support meetings that always feature a health education topic of interest to the heart patient community.  

Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of the month from 4 to 6pm in the Martins Conference Room on the 2nd Floor of Cape Cod Hospital.  

At each meeting, there is also an opportunity to interact with other heart patients with similar conditions.  Individuals with any type of heart condition, their families, caregivers, medical professionals, or anyone else interested in helping cardiac patients are welcome to attend a meeting and find out more about Mended Hearts.
