Mr. and Mrs. Donald Leebern, Jr. (Suzanne) - Samsky Advanced Heart Failure Center $100,000

Mr. and Mrs. Donald Leebern, Jr. have donated $100,000 to expand the Patient Navigation Program within the Samksy Advanced Heart Failure Center.

The funds will enable Piedmont Heart Institute to expand patient navigation and outreach efforts, which improve patient outcomes using integrated care tailored to the patient and guided by the navigator. This generous donation will be recognized as the Leeborn Navigation Suites within the newly renovated, one-of –a-kind center opening in the fall of 2016.

The Samsky Advanced Heart Failure Center is a multidisciplinary, comprehensive advanced heart failure center in Atlanta that will be viewed as a leader in the Southeast. This center of excellence will provide patients with an accessible point of entry for coordinated, best practice services under one seamless shared-care model, while educating and training clinicians on diagnosis and the latest treatment. One of the cornerstones of the center is patient navigation to improve access to care.

The intent of the center is to transform the way patients enter the healthcare system, are diagnosed, educated and treated. Such a center fosters continuity of care through the coordinated return of patients to their local community.
