Denton – Medical City Heart Hospital is expanding care access for North Texas heart failure patients with the September 13 opening of a new Advanced Heart Failure Clinic at Medical City Denton.

The new outpatient clinic offers ongoing care management and expertise for patients dealing with heart failure and heart weakness, with a goal to help prevent hospital readmissions. For example, patients with these heart conditions may have had a left ventricular device (LVAD) implanted, a heart transplant or other therapies and treatments – and require follow-up care and education to help prevent future relapses.

“This clinic provides the Denton area with access to Medical City Heart Hospital’s multispecialty team of heart failure professionals when and where they need it, close to home,” says Steve Edgar, CEO of Medical City Denton. “Our expert, local providers offer targeted care focused on helping patients return to and maintain their normal life activities — backed by Medical City Heart Hospital’s advanced cardiology resources.”

Denton’s Advanced Heart Failure Clinic is located in the physician office building adjacent to Medical City Denton, 3537 South I-35E, Suite 213, 76210. Patients may be referred to the clinic by their current physician or can self-refer by phoning the clinic at 940-384-3025 to make an appointment. Physicians may also FAX referrals to 940-384-3026.

Medical City Heart Hospital also offers an Advanced Heart Failure outpatient clinic at the hospital’s campus in Dallas, 11970 North Central Expressway.
