The joint venture between Michigan Medicine and Trinity Health has fostered the integration of several Michigan Medicine services at Chelsea Hospital, including the Michigan Hospitalists at Chelsea (MHC) service. Staffed by Michigan Medicine hospitalists, this service provides care for general medicine patients and houses the Chelsea Heart Failure Program. The Chelsea Heart Failure Program, designed and directed by Michigan Medicine heart failure specialists in collaboration with Michigan Medicine hospitalists, was created for patients with heart failure requiring hospitalization. The program begins with inpatient care delivered by Michigan Medicine hospitalists at Chelsea Hospital.
At discharge, patients are enrolled in the Michigan Medicine Heart Failure Bridges and Transitions Program. This program provides patients with close monitoring and education during the first month after discharge. With several interventions, this program seeks to minimize the risk of repeat hospitalization and set patients on the path to long-term success.
