Mended Hearts’ Strategic Plan

As Mended Hearts grows and adapts to the ever-changing cardiovascular world, the Board of Directors conducts a strategic review of the previous 24 months and determines new goals for the organization. This process is designed to move our organization in a new direction with the goal to reach more patients and caregivers. The 2016-2018 Strategic Plan is the result of a national board planning meeting held in September 2015. The Strategic Plan outlines Mended Hearts and Mended Little Hearts’ objectives and is designed to be implemented and executed in 36-months to meet these new goals.

The Plan includes six major organizational goals that build on MHI’s solid foundation. The Board of Directors created this strategic plan to strengthen our patient outreach efforts, increase awareness and broaden our patient and family reach. The six major goals are:
