Our specialized, targeted heart failure programs are the best place for you to seek care for your heart failure. Our patients benefit from a highly-specialized medical team, the latest research, the most advanced treatments, and support for lifestyle changes.

Multiple Specialists

We provide the best heart failure care possible by bringing a variety of experts together on one team. These doctors each have their own specialties and refined skills:

  • Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology
  • Cardiovascular Critical Care Physicians
  • Heart Rhythm Specialists
  • Cardiothoracic Surgeons

Supporting You in Every Way

Our programs also include pathologists, nurse practitioners, skilled nurses, social workers, financial counselors, and dieticians. This allows us to support you in all areas of your life affected by heart failure. Our programs hold multiple meetings each week, so that all team members can sit down together and discuss every patient under their care.

More Experience

We care for over 5,000 patients with heart failure every year. Our center is one of only a few programs to have performed over 1,000 cardiac transplant procedures. We have over 20 years of experience in ventricular assist devices and mechanical heart pumps. These volumes allow us to track data and continuously improve the medical care we provide.

Advanced Heart Failure Therapies

We offer the latest and most advanced treatment options consistent with national heart failure guidelines. These include:

  • Medical Therapy
  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy and ICDs
  • Heart Transplantation
  • Mechanical Circulatory Support (Artificial Heart and Ventricular Assist Devices)
  • High-risk CABG (bypass surgery) and other surgical options

Long-standing participation in research

We participate in numerous clinical trials, bringing you the latest heart failure research and technology. We were the leading enrolling center for the landmark ventricular assist device (artificial heart) trial in the U.S. In addition, our providers are world-renowned for their independent research, particularly for understanding heart transplant rejection.
