ICARe-HF Accredited centres

ICARe-HF – Recognising excellence in heart failure care An international accreditation programme for heart failure centres.

The Heart Failure Association (HFA) is pleased to recognise these ICARe-HF Quality of Care Centres and congratulates them on their accomplishment.



A distinction will be made for advanced centres:

  • Type A advanced centres have the ability to perform cardiac surgeries such as heart transplants and/or mechanical circulatory implantations. These centres also have the ability to identify patients eligible for this type of surgery and provide them with the necessary care.
  • Type B advanced centres have the capacity to identify patients eligible for cardiac surgery such as heart transplants and/or mechanical circulatory implantations, refer them to a Type A advanced centre and provide them with the necessary care. However, these centres do not have the ability to perform these cardiac surgeries on their own.
