Your doctor will refer you for an appointment. You'll then meet with one of our attending doctors at your first visit. On follow-up visits, the entire heart failure center team will help manage your care.

Our Nurse Practitioner Clinic also ensures that you will be able to make an appointment to see a heart specialist even on short notice.

Appointments for the Hospital to Home Clinic are made for patients at the hospital prior to discharge.

Nutrition Counseling

We offer counseling from a registered dietician. If interested, ask your doctor or nurse to refer you. Same-day appointments may be available.

At the Heart Failure and Transplant Center, our heart doctors and nurses work with you to treat and monitor your condition. 

We take a comprehensive approach to healing your heart and can help you with everything from lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise to medications, device implants and even heart transplants.

We'll make sure your care plan is personalized for your needs and takes into account any other conditions you may have.
