Mended Hearts began in 1951 when Dr. Dwight Harken, Chief of Cardio Thoracic Surgery at Brigham Hospital in Boston, saw a need for a support group to help his patients after they had undergone heart surgery.  The Greater Rochester Chapter 50 was established in 1966.

Mended Hearts brings together patients, spouses, family, and medical professionals to form a network of caring individuals.
