About the Heart Failure and Transplant Program at OHSU
Your heart is a muscle, and sometimes that muscle can fail. At OHSU, we care for people with all types and stages of heart failure. You receive the most advanced care in a treatment program designed just for you. Our goal is to help you enjoy life and do more of what you want. As Oregon’s only research and teaching hospital, OHSU provides all types of heart failure and transplant care, including the most complex. We also know you are more than just your heart. Our experts work with specialists in every OHSU department to treat all your health concerns.
OHSU and the American Heart Association are working together to provide heart failure resources for Oregon and SW Washington. Although it can be difficult living with a chronic condition like heart failure, people can continue to enjoy full lives as they address their symptoms. Our campaign aims to provide helpful resources – such as self-monitoring tools, ways to recognize the signs, tips on lifestyle changes, and questions to ask providers – all in an effort to help people manage the condition.
