Currently, more than 25 million people suffer from heart failure, and of those 25 million, over 630,000 will die as a result of the condition (according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). At Jewish Hospital, the Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant Center is making strides in research, advancements and technology to decrease the mortality rates and provide life-saving options for individuals suffering from this disease.
It is this level of commitment that paved the way for the first heart transplant in Kentucky performed at Jewish Hospital in 1984. Since then, over 300 heart transplants have occurred here, thanks to an invaluable multidisciplinary team approach.
Whether you’re looking for a program to deal with Congestive Heart Failure, or awaiting a transplant, Jewish Hospital has a caring team designed to walk you through the process, every step of the way.
