Our Services


Clinics & Rehabilitation

At Fairfield Medical Center, we are committed to helping patients with heart and vascular disease live an active and healthy life. Listed below are some of the services offered for patients to maintain the best quality of life possible. 

Heart Failure Clinic
Heart failure is a chronic condition in which the heart’s ability to pump blood is reduced. As a result, patients often feel tired and weak and simple activities may seem exhausting. Common symptoms are shortness of breath and swelling in the legs, feet, stomach and lungs. At the Heart Failure Clinic at Fairfield Medical Center, a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians and pharmacists all work together to help patients with heart failure improve their quality of life and stay out of the hospital or emergency room. Patients visit the clinic within one week of discharge from the hospital and have regularly scheduled follow up appointments to monitor symptoms, review medications and make sure they are working, provide any needed education and address any concerns the patient might have. The heart failure team regularly communicates with the patient’s cardiologist or primary care physician to ensure that all care is coordinated.

Structural Heart Program
The Structural Heart Program at Fairfield Medical Center offers a team-based approach in the evaluation and treatment of patients with suspected or previously diagnosed structural heart disease. Some structural heart diseases may be congenital (present at birth) while others may develop later in life from the natural wear and tear of aging; either way, early detection is key to quality of life. The Structural Heart Program enables patients to conveniently see multiple providers in a single visit and quickly complete diagnostics. Once evaluation and any necessary testing has been completed, a collaborative care team – made up of interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, imaging specialists and advanced practice nurses – works together to create a detailed, personalized treatment plan. A nurse navigator will be available to coordinate care and offer guidance, education and support for patients and their families throughout the program.
