Heart Failure Program
Our patients receive the best care the region has to offer with the Institute for Heart & Vascular Health being the only accredited heart failure center in northern Nevada.
We are committed to helping our patients understand and manage a heart failure diagnosis. Our team builds a customer plan to address specific health and lifestyle issues so each patient can live well with heart failure.
The Heart Failure Program is an innovative approach to treating heart failure, designed to help patients understand and manage the condition. It begins in the hospital where patients receive information on maintaining good heart health and continues after discharge through the outpatient Heart Failure Program. Participants receive careful monitoring by our dedicated team of heart failure specialists including:
- An individual plan of care, including doctor follow up.
- Heart failure education through every stage of recovery and beyond.
- Meeting with qualified heart failure personnel to evaluate lifestyle needs.
- Motivation and guidance to live well with heart failure.
The outpatient program includes visits with a heart failure nurse to help patients understand their individualized health care plan.
