Methodist Heart Hospital provides total care for patients with or at risk of heart failure. Our cardiovascular surgeons are always standing by for emergency care when needed, but our facility also emphasizes preventive care and education to help patients better understand and maximize their heart health.

Patients also have access to our outpatient program, which focuses on management strategies that include:

  • Proper nutrition
  • Exercise plans
  • Medication management
  • Symptom management

Heart failure at Methodist Healthcare

Heart failure is an indication that the heart is no longer working at its full potential. The heart is unable to pump blood as well as normal, which prevents the heart from receiving all the blood and oxygen it requires. Lifestyle changes and medication are popular treatment plans to combat heart failure.
