Heart Failure Clinic

The Heart Failure Clinic is a key component of our Heart Center. Our team includes cardiologists, nurse practitioners, heart failure nurse coordinators, dietitians, case managers, and home care specialists. Team members work closely with patients and their primary care physicians throughout the process. Our outpatient clinic provides comprehensive education to heart failure patients, enabling them to successfully manage their illness after they leave the hospital.

Lifestyle choices, medication and continuous monitoring are all components of our program. The goals of our program are:

  • Slow progression of the disease

Patients meet regularly with one of our heart failure nurses. Our specially-trained nurses work closely with you, your primary care physician and your cardiologist to optimize your care.
