Heart Failure Clinic

Living with heart failure? The Heart Failure Clinic offers the tools you need to feel better. We'll teach you how to recognize the signs and symptoms of heart failure so you can monitor yourself at home.

We're a specialized center with providers whose focus is to reduce the number of unnecessary visits to the emergency room, prevent hospitalizations and help you to live a full and productive life.

How do I make an appointment?

Every St. Luke's patient who receives a discharge diagnosis of heart failure is seen by clinic staff three to five days after they're discharged. In addition, a doctor or cardiologist can refer patients to the clinic. If you think the Clinic can help you, ask your attending doctor for a referral to enroll.

Benefits to you and your family

Heart failure is serious and requires immediate medical attention. But it shouldn't mean you have to make frequent trips to the hospital. Our goal is to keep your heart healthy enough to manage problems before they become emergencies. We:

  • Provide follow-up services to continue the care, education and encouragement you received during your hospital stay as you transition to home. You'll see the same nurse practitioner who cared for you in the hospital
  • Help you better understand heart failure so you can monitor the signs and symptoms at home
  • Adjust medications to decrease symptoms and improve heart function
  • Closely evaluate your physical health and other factors that affect how you feel
  • Communicate with your doctor and others on your healthcare team
  • Connect you with other healthcare team members, such as social workers, home care, pharmacists, exercise experts and counselors
  • Work closely with you and your family, offering longer appointments than a normal outpatient physician clinic visit so you have the information you need

Location

We're conveniently located at UnityPoint Health - Cardiology Clinic in the PCI Medical Pavilion. You can use valet parking or park in the ramp and take the sky walk across to our offices on the 2nd floor.

After hours

If you have an emergency after office hours, please contact your doctor's office.

If you have symptoms not related to heart failure, please contact doctor.
