Sherman Health’s Heart Failure Recovery Center

The Heart Failure Recovery Center offers comprehensive disease monitoring for patients with heart failure in an out-patient clinic setting. The clinic assists in carrying out the treatment plan as prescribed by the patient’s physicians.

The primary objectives of the Heart Failure Recovery Center are:

  • reduce the number of unnecessary emergency room visits,
  • to prevent hospitalizations,
  • assist patients in living a full and productive life.

All patient visits to the Heart Failure Recovery Center will be communicated to the patient’s primary care physician and cardiologist via a report sent to those physicians’ offices. All Urgent patient needs or orders will be addressed in collaboration with the patient’s physician.

Education is imperative and is provided to patients and families regarding heart failure, medications, diagnostic testing, diet, daily weights, fluid restrictions, and other associated educational needs as they arise. By involving not only the patient but also their family in their personal plan of care, the Heart Failure Recovery Center strives to improve the patient’s quality of life.
