Heart-Healthy Choices

Prevention is key when it comes to fighting heart disease. That’s why Olathe Health offers a number of programs and resources to make it easy for patients to learn how to make heart-healthy decisions today and monitor their heart health regularly.

For most people, seeing a primary care physician regularly is the first step towards maintaining one’s heart health. The primary care physician performs regular check-ups, orders age-appropriate tests and screenings and discusses ways you can maintain a heart-healthy weight, diet and lifestyle. Thanks to Olathe Health Physicians’ 35 freestanding clinics and more than 100 providers, finding quality primary healthcare is easy and convenient. Many of these clinics offer same-day appointments scheduled by phone or in person.

Olathe Health also offers a number of heart screenings, including:

  • Cholesterol and Glucose Screenings: With this simple screening, you can monitor important measurements of your health, including total cholesterol, HDL ("good" cholesterol), LDL ("bad" cholesterol), and glucose. No appointment necessary, just stop by Olathe Medical Center between 6:30 am and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

HeartScore64™ is a painless, non-invasive test at Olathe Medical Center that determines your calcium score within minutes. A physician order is required.
