About Us

To get great care for your everyday life, visit our convenient location where you’ll receive compassionate, personalized care.

The Congestive Heart Failure Clinic at Ascension Providence opened in 2001 as a physician-directed and nurse-managed clinic providing comprehensive care for patients with the diagnosis of heart failure. The staff work with the physician to provide long-term outpatient heart failure management.

Experienced cardiovascular nurses are certified in specialized heart failure care by the AAHFN-American Association of Heart Failure Nurses. The nurses also have advanced cardiac life support certification. Infusion therapy, medication assistance, and in-depth teaching about the disease process and lifestyle are just a few of the services available to the CHF Clinic patient.

Understanding Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a condition in which the heart’s function as a pump is inadequate to deliver oxygen rich blood to the body. Congestive heart failure can be caused by:

  • Diseases that weaken the heart muscle
  • Diseases that cause stiffening of the heart muscles
  • Diseases that increase oxygen demand by the body tissue beyond the capability of the heart to deliver adequate oxygen-rich blood

Referral Questions

For the patient to be enrolled in the clinic, a referral must be made by the patient’s physician. Contact the clinic by calling 254-751-4284.
