Heart Failure Care

Heart failure means that your heart muscle doesn't pump as much blood as your body needs. Failure doesn't mean that your heart has stopped. It means that your heart is not pumping as well as it should.

With heart failure you can achieve and maintain your best quality of life with the help of expert cardiology care. From the hospital to the home, our team of heart failure experts will stay in close contact with you, your family, and primary care physician to support the education and medical oversight that you need. The goal with heart failure is to reduce unneeded emergency room visits, prevent hospitalizations, and help you live a full life. St. Luke’s emphasizes patient education and the involvement of patients and families in developing a care plan to support the best outcomes possible.
