MUSC's 'one-stop' cardiovascular center opening

MUSC is starting a new program that aims to help people and help control medical costs by early detection of cardiovascular disease.

A press release talks about the services offered:
comprehensive cardiovascular exams, nutrition assessments, counseling, rehabilitation, weight management, and exercise. The outpatient nature of the program will provide patients with one-stop access to a full range of cardiovascular services.

The program was helped off the ground by a $1 millon gift from the Seinsheimers, the press release continues:
Wally Seinsheimer, who serves on the MUSC Foundation board of directors, said he and Bev looked at escalating health care costs and decided that creating a clinic would help people avoid catastrophic illness. "That's why we focused on preventive care: to make people's lives longer and more enjoyable, to save the health care system from increased costs, and to avoid overloading the health care system," he said.
