By meeting with others who have prediabetes you can celebrate each other’s successes and work together to overcome obstacles.

A New Model of Heart Care

If you are living with heart failure, education and special medical attention can keep you out of the hospital and help you live a more healthy, active life.

The HFC is comprised of nurse practitioners and registered nurses who partner with your cardiologist, primary care physicians and other healthcare providers to develop a plan of care to help you accomplish medical and personal goals.

The HFC recently launched its first Mobile Integrated Health-Community Paramedic (MIH-CP) program this past October where a community paramedic works in conjunction with the three Heart Failure Clinics in Spartanburg, Greer and Gaffney to enhance access to healthcare using virtual technology in the comfort of the patient’s home.

Patients and loved ones are invited to join us and hear Heart Failure Clinic team members and a community paramedic share complete information about the program, eligibility requirements and treat options available to those diagnosed with congestive heart failure.
