In situations with heart failure, early identification and intervention of are critical. Physicians optimize care of all aspects of heart failure from diagnosis to treatment and aftercare. This includes rapid evaluation for life-saving therapies such as mechanical circulatory support and transplant. Interventional cardiologists perform a full spectrum of diagnostic testing and catheterizations.

Services are provided by the nationally renowned WMC/Health Heart and Vascular Institute, also a member of WMC/Health. Its multidisciplinary heart failure team is comprised of heart failure physicians, cardiothoracic surgeons, advanced practitioners, psychiatrists, social workers and nutritionists who collaborate to optimize patient care.
