Advanced Heart Failure Services

Call for more information: 770-534-2020

For patients with heart failure, life can be challenging. At Northeast Georgia Medical Center, we help patients manage their heart health and lead fulfilling lives--even for those with advanced stages of the disease. 

Many patients with heart failure can maintain their quality of life with therapies prescribed by our advanced heart failure specialists. Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) offers Advanced Heart Failure Services to inpatients at our hospital campuses in Gainesville, Braselton and Winder, and to outpatients through The Heart Center of NGMC in Gainesville and Braselton.

Why choose NGMC for Heart Failure Services?

Our goal is to provide patients, as well as their family members/caregivers, with the education they need to understand the heart failure disease process, and how to best manage their condition at home whenever possible.

If your condition requires care in a hospital setting, our physicians are available to provide the treatment you need on an inpatient basis so you receive the care you need, close to home.
