More than 5 million Americans are affected by Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), and it is one of the leading causes of hospitalizations and readmissions across the country. To better serve our patients, Silver Cross provides specialized outpatient nursing care with the aim of preventing hospital readmissions.

What we Provide
Located in the Infusion Center in Pavilion A at Silver Cross Hospital, our outpatient setting provides convenient and easy access to Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) services.

Heart failure management is a team effort–making you and your physician the key players on the team. Our staff will work closely with your physician to provide the treatment you need.

  • Vital Assessments
  • Lasix infusions to treat fluid retention and high blood pressure
  • Lab Draws

How to Get Started
Once we’ve received your physician’s referral to our program, call (815) 300-7134 to schedule your first appointment. Your health status will be evaluated by a registered nurse in our Infusion Center during your first appointment. Our goal is to help you live well with CHF.
