The realization that women and men get sick—and stay healthy—in different ways has sparked the emergence of centers dedicated to women's health. The National Institutes of Health has identified 20 Centers of Excellence in Women's Health across the United States. There are also dozens of other centers around the country that specialize in helping women cope with heart disease. We have assembled as complete a list as possible below, organized by state. If you know of a center we haven't listed, please let us know.
