Congestive heart failure affects more than five million Americans each year, with symptoms resulting in debilitating fatigue, shortness of breath and dependent edema, all of which limit lifestyle choices and can cause frequent hospitalizations.

Anderson CHF Management Center offers a valuable service to patients with congestive heart failure by providing education and close follow-up. The CHF Management Center staff, led by R. Scott Joransen, MD, and Joan Griffin, RN, BSN, closely monitors weight and fluid intake, makes adjustment to medications if needed, administers IV medications and provides dietary counseling, all with physician direction. This treatment program is designed to improve the quality and length of life for patients with CHF.
