NOTE: The Advanced Heart Failure Network is an enhanced cardiac collaboration that includes the expert care from subspecialists at Emory University Hospital, Emory University Hospital Midtown and Saint Joseph's Hospital of Atlanta. For over 20 years Emory Healthcare and Saint Joseph's Hospital have had the largest advanced heart failure programs in Georgia. The new collaboration will focus on meeting the needs of patients and their families dealing with heart failure. Patients in need of advanced heart failure management, medical and surgical management of other heart conditions and related therapies, may now access treatment at any of the three facilities.
