The Congestive Heart Failure Program identifies congestive heart failure (CHF) patients throughout the health system and provides quality education, optimal medical/nursing care and therapy. Our goal is to take failure out of heart failure and make it heart success!
Program success stems from the full integration of heart life education, nutrition education, physical therapy, occupational therapy, case management, social services, geriatric inpatient team, and in some instances the Palliative Care Team, all under the leadership of the CHF Coordinator. The program also provides continuity of care and appropriate discharge navigation and planning for all patients with the diagnosis of Congestive Heart Failure. For select patients, GHS engages in close collaboration with other medical centers to provide advanced heart failure treatments like heart assist devices and heart transplant when appropriate.
