The Carl H. & Edyth Lindner Heart Failure Treatment Center
The Heart Link Program at The Christ Hospital is a unique tool to help patients with heart failure transition from the hospital to home. Specially trained nurses connect with patients after discharge to review diet, exercise, medication and how to monitor for changes in health. This program was recognized at the 2008 Innovative Solution Awards, presented by the Greater Cincinnati Health Council. Patients also benefit from a monthly heart failure education and support group.
Additionally, The Christ Hospital is involved in Institutional Review Board-approved, nationally published research of heart failure management and treatment methods, including in the areas of ultrafiltration and implantable devices.
In 2008, The Christ Hospital opened a clinic for congestive heart failure patients, located at The Christ Hospital Medical Office Building. The clinic treats the increasing aging population with heart failure, specifically the heart failure patients who do not have any insurance and are at risk because of inability to pay for follow-up appointments or medications. For more information about the clinic, please call 513-585-2472.
