Heart Failure Care in Ohio

You can live successfully with heart failure

Whether you’re on track for a transplant or considering a ventricular assist device, our heart failure specialists and specialty-trained providers can help minimize your symptoms and maximize your life.

Help and hope for every heart

Heart failure progresses over time. As your heart muscle weakens, it no longer has the strength to pump oxygen-rich blood through your body. It can lead to fatigue and shortness of breath, swelling, and kidney and liver damage. But in the hands of the right team, heart failure is manageable. Call today (614) 566.3175

OhioHealth is both a bridge to transplant and a destination heart failure care provider. That means our experts can help keep you in your best health while you wait for a new heart. And if you’re not eligible for transplant, they offer several options for maximizing your quality of life with medications and ventricular assist devices.
