St. Dominic’s Heart Failure Clinic, located in the St. Dominic’s Medical Mall Hospital (beside the Gift Shop) is a stand-alone clinic overseen by an experienced nurse practitioner. St. Dominic’s Heart Failure Clinic offers heart failure patients quick, easy and accessible healthcare. We provide detailed education about the disease process, dietary restriction of sodium and fluid, as well as therapy options.  We also offer laboratory services, support groups, and if warranted, intravenous or intramuscular diuretic injections.

The clinic’s primary focus is treating patients with congestive heart failure. We are able to help manage symptoms of this disease and other issues that may arise in conjunction with heart failure. Patients can easily make an appointment in the clinic with a referral from their cardiologist or primary care provider. We strive to follow patients closely alongside of their cardiologist, primary care provider and nephrologist (if applicable). Our goal is to help our patients who are experiencing this challenging and chronic condition to regain a lifetime of wellness and decrease costly inpatient hospital stays, while maintaining a high quality of life.
