Heart Failure


The goal of the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System Heart Failure program is to provide outstanding patient care while developing and applying cutting edge technology and treatment approaches. We utilize a multidisciplinary disease management approach to care of patients with early to advanced stage heart failure. Our program strives to meet our patients medical and non-medical needs, employing a team of nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, social workers and physicians trained in the management of heart failure.


A comprehensive inpatient program also exists to assure Heart Failure patients receive the highest quality, most cost efficient care.


Highlights of the inpatient program include the following:

      

In addition to applying the most advanced technology and treatment to patients care, we pursue an active research program in both clinical and translational sciences. Our group is pursuing a pharmacogenomics approach in an effort to provide personalized heart failure therapy.
