Sleep is important part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. http://ind.pn/1RitNjg
We devote around seven to eight hours to sleep each night in adulthood and ten to 12 hours in childhood. This amounts to around 200,000 hours in our first 60 years of life. Not getting enough sleep does a disservice to our brain and physical health. But how can we improve our chances of getting a good night’s rest?

Story
Tagline
Reducing heart disease & advancing heart health through research, education and improved patient care.
Introduction
The Texas Heart Institute (THI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastating toll of cardiovascular disease through innovative and progressive programs in research, education and improved patient care.

Company Overview

Texas Heart Institute was founded by Dr. Denton A. Cooley in 1962. Its location in and affiliations with St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital and Texas Children's Hospital assured that all age groups would be treated and freed the Institute of the burden of financing a health care facility. 

THI is a nonprofit organization in the truest sense. Unlike most institutions that have a source of operating revenue, Texas Heart Institute relies solely on government grants, research contracts and, above all, philanthropy. In fact, donations from grateful patients, foundations, corporations, physicians, and the general public account for more than half of the Institute's annual operating budget.

Contact Information

If you need information about keeping your heart healthy, contact our Heart Information Center: 
You can contact Texas Heart Institute administration at 832-355-4011.

You can find patient-related contact information on the St. Luke's website or call their main number at 832-355-1000.
