Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center

The Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center is dedicated to consolidating cardiac care, particularly for patients with heart failure, into a convenient and comprehensive cardiology clinic. The center, which was created through a $5 million gift from Max and Debra Ernst, is conveniently located at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak near the East Entrance.

In 2009, the couple also gave $3 million to open the Ernst Cardiovascular Center in Memory of Ellen Ernst.

The 14,000-square-foot center combines outpatient heart services into one dedicated space and helps patients better manage conditions and reduce emergency center visits and hospital readmissions.

The Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center includes:

In partnership with primary care and other specialty physicians, patients referred to the Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center will receive comprehensive evaluations that complement already established patient care. Our mission is to ensure our patients and their families are well supported through a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach, including access to dedicated resources that help patients adhere to heart-healthy lifestyle modifications.

The Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center features two state-of-the-art treatment rooms, where patients at risk for decompensated heart failure can be referred for evaluation and, if needed, receive medication in the outpatient setting. Treatment is provided under the supervision of physicians, advanced practice providers and nurses specializing in heart failure care.
