Heart Failure Bridge Clinic

The Heart Failure Bridge Clinic helps patients manage their heart failure by providing a smooth transition home from the hospital and offering support during heart failure exacerbations. Patients who are seen in the Heart Failure Bridge Clinic are less likely to be readmitted to the hospital in the future.

Patient Population

  • The Heart Failure Bridge Clinic is available to patients who have a primary diagnosis of heart failure. Post-discharge visits are given to those patients who live within 50 miles of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, although anyone can come to the clinic, regardless of distance. Our physicians will work with patients who live outside the 50 miles radius to find appropriate care closer to their home.
