The team at the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute specializes in diagnosis and treatment of heart failure and understands how to manage it. The team works closely with each patient, the patient’s primary care doctor, and the patient’s family. This coordinated approach focuses on the individual needs of each patient and family and helps them live with heart failure more comfortably and easily.
The center has numerous resources at its disposal and uses a multi-disciplinary team approach to care. The team includes referring doctors, nurse practitioners, expert cardiovascular nurses, pharmacists, exercise specialists, and nutritionists.
Because heart failure can profoundly affect how patients and families live their lives, the Center emphasizes education and support to improve quality of life.
