Our program offers both inpatient and outpatient therapy to our patients suffering from congestive heart failure. For inpatients, upon admission to CCMC, a patient with a primary diagnosis of congestive heart failure will be seen in consultation by a cardiologist and followed by a dedicated transition coach. The coach will assure protocols and education are initiated. The coach will assist the patient in managing and optimizing their care. The coach assures the patient has the appropriate follow up in the congestive heart failure clinic within three days after discharge and arranges for other post discharge needs such as home health or rehab.
