The Heart Failure Unit at the Hadassah University Medical Center was established to provide the basis for the National Heart Transplant Program. Since then, it has developed into an active center that offers comprehensive medical care to heart failure patients. Patients receive coverage from a multidisciplinary team of expert physicians, nurses, dieticians and social workers.
Primarily, the program is based on an active out-patient clinic and a day-care facility that operate throughout the week. In addition, patients can be hospitalized in regular medical ward beds, monitored beds and in the intensive cardiac care unit, which is fully equipped for hemodynamic monitoring.
