Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Program

The Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Program can help you take care of your heart from home. You will have a team of providers working with you to find the best care plan for you. We will carefully watch your blood pressure and your weight gain.

What we offer

As part of the program you will get:

  • A special scale to monitor your weight that sends your weight to your healthcare provider by a computer (your team will let you know if you need one)
  • A care plan just for you
  • Tips to manage your condition
  • Educational materials to take home

The congestive heart failure program will teach you how to:

  • Live with your disease
  • Manage your medicines
  • Use your scale and what to do if you are gaining too much weight
  • Eat healthy and how to monitor salt and fluids
  • Deal with more serious health problems that may come up

We want to help you live the best life you can with CHF.
