Lutheran Health Physicians' advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology teams provide comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care for advanced heart failure and heart transplant patients. Lutheran Hospital's heart transplant program begin in 1985, and more than 300 patients have received new hearts since the program's inception.
