EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., May 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CHF Solutions (Nasdaq: CHFS) today announces that Sussex County, Delaware-based health system, Beebe Healthcare, has initiated offering ultrafiltration therapy using the company’s Aquadex FlexFlow system.
“As heart failure and other conditions that contribute to fluid overload expand worldwide, CHF continues to provide a proven solution for managing this patient population to improve their quality of life and reducing the cost of care,” said John Erb, CEO of CHF Solutions. “We are proud to be a part of the Beebe Healthcare system and look forward to partnering with Beebe’s clinicians in the care of their fluid overloaded patients.”
“This treatment has become a very viable and useful alternative for appropriate heart failure patients, and we are excited to have it available at Beebe Healthcare,” said Alberto Rosa, MD, Medical Director of Heart Failure. “The Aquadex FlexFlow system gives us a wonderful option for treating patients and keeping them comfortable when they no longer respond to diuretics.”
Lynn Toth, DNP, MSN, RN, NP-C, Cardiovascular Medical Specialist added, “There are many potential uses for aquapheresis as the Beebe program grows, from weekly treatments that allow heart failure patients to manage their fluid build-up, to fluid removal that enables patients to undergo surgery.“
Beebe Healthcare serves a rapidly growing community with several campuses located throughout Sussex County, Delaware. The Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus, is home to the health system’s 210 licensed-bed acute care hospital. In 2019, Beebe opened the Center for Robotic Surgery, which features multiple specialties.
