​​​​​​​Achieving Better Care for Heart Failure Patients

Watch to learn more about our Advanced Heart Failure Program and its impact on our patients' lives. 

Heart failure​ is a condition that develops when the heart's muscle becomes weakened and loses its ability to pump enough blood to supply the body's needs. The condition affects over five million Americans and is one of the fastest-growing heart issues.

 

Our heart failure team is advancing the level of care available to patients in the Tristate. We offer access to advanced heart failure physicians in all of our The Christ Hospital Physicians - Ohio Heart & Vascular locations and are the only hospital with an entire unit and team of specialists dedicated to heart failure. Our focus on patient education provides resources to help patients manage their conditions and improve quality of life. We work together to ensure patients have the necessary tools and information to stay healthy at home.
