  • Coordinate follow-up appointments with doctors and nurses who will continue to care for you
  • Provide information about your care to all your doctors so everyone has information about your treatment plan and follow-up care
  • Work with you and others to make sure you are taking the appropriate medications for your heart failure based on proven national guidelines for care

You are at the Center of all we Do

Our comprehensive approach includes you in your care and ensures all your health care providers are involved during and after your hospital stay so you receive the best care to manage your heart failure condition.

After your hospital care, your doctor and nurse navigator will often refer you to a specialized clinic for heart failure patients for ongoing care. Specially trained heart doctors and nurses in this clinic continue your care and:

  • Create your personalized treatment plan
  • Help you gain the skills you need to manage your heart failure
  • Provide support to you each step of the way
