The Center for Heart Failure provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services to adults with heart failure and cardiomyopathy, which is the inability for the heart to pump normally. We have a multidisciplinary team of advanced heart failure cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, structural heart cardiologists, electrophysiologists, advanced imaging specialists, nurse practitioners, nutritionists and social workers to provide a leading community heart failure program.
We individualize each patient’s care based on their circumstance, matching goals of care with the best treatments available. Our focus is improving the quality of life for our patients and making the healthcare system easier to navigate through accessible care in the community.
Our outpatient Atherton Heart Failure Clinic both bridges the gap from hospital discharge to home and offers a longitudinal care program for patients with chronic heart failure. Patients can be seen within one week of discharge from the hospital to receive the treatment and support they need to manage their heart failure. With patients who benefit from frequent visits for medication titrations and/or diuretic management, the Atherton Heart Failure Clinic provides accessible, patient-centered care.
