Heart Failure Center

If you are living with heart failure, education and special medical attention can keep you out of the hospital and help you live a more healthy, active life.

At our outpatient Heart Failure Center, you and your nurse practitioner work alongside your cardiologist, primary care physician and other healthcare providers to develop a plan of care to accomplish your medical and personal goals.

Our nurse practitioners are on-call 24 hours a day. Our team will begin working with you while you are still in the hospital. At any time, we can help you arrange emergency visits if you have new or worsening symptoms.

Our staff will also coordinate your care with home health or other agencies and make referrals to other specialists. We can help you get medications through one of several medication assistance programs, if you qualify.

Aquapheresis treatment for heart failure

Many heart disease patients, especially people with heart failure, hold excess water throughout their body. This contributes to weight gain and puts additional stress on the heart. When reducing the amount of salt and fluid in the diet or other treatments don’t work, aquapheresis is an option for our patients.

During aquapheresis, a catheter (small, thin tube) is placed in a vein and your blood is circulated through a filtration system to remove the excess salt and water. Many patients find that they feel better just hours after treatment begins. Aquapheresis requires an overnight stay in the hospital, usually one to two days.
