Heart Failure Program

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is not a disease but a serious condition that occurs when the heart is not pumping enough blood to meet the body's demand for oxygen. When the heart fails, it is unable to pump efficiently which often results in congestion in the lungs. It is usually a long-term, chronic condition but can sometimes develop suddenly.


Treating heart failure as early as possible offers the best chance for a longer and higher-quality life. Patients and their families who are coping with congestive heart failure (CHF) can participate in Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital's comprehensive CHF program. Using a team approach, our CHF program is specially designed to teach patients about their condition, their medications, how to maintain heart health and to offer support.
