The Outpatient Heart Failure Clinic at Palms of Pasadena Hospital clinic assists in immediate care to heart failure patients in the local community. Staffed by a board-certified acute care nurse practitioner, the clinic acts as an extension of our local healthcare providers.
The goal of Palms of Pasadena's Heart Failure Clinic is to help bridge the gap between hospital discharge and the patient being seen for a follow-up appointment with their primary physician or cardiologist. Clinic services can also be available for those physicians and clinics that encounter a large volume of patients, which can sometimes make it difficult to schedule a heart failure patient within a short timeframe.
Services provided in the clinic include:
- Rapid hospital follow-up (within 24-72 hours post-discharge)
- Comprehensive heart failure education for both the patient and his/her family
- Medical therapy consistent with evidence-based practices
- Emergent intravenous diuretic therapy
The Heart Failure Clinic is located directly across from the main hospital at 1609 Pasadena Ave S, Suite 1E. Clinic hours are Monday - Thursday: 8:00am - 4:00pm and Friday: 8:00am - 12:00pm.
To schedule an appointment, or for questions about the program, contact the clinic at (727) 528-5739.
