(MURFREESBORO) February is National Heart Month, and Ascension St. Thomas Rutherford newborns are "Going Red For Heart"! 

  • Congenital heart defects are the most common form of birth defect in the United States, affecting nearly 40,000 births per year. 
  • Nearly 1 in 100 babies are born with a heart defect. 
  • Ascension Saint Thomas is the local sponsor for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement. One of the movement's main priorities is ensuring that women have access to the care and resources that support heart health. This includes empowering expectant mothers with information about their hearts and their babies' hearts.
