Comprehensive Care at Every Stage of Heart Failure
Penn's Heart Failure Program is an innovative approach to treating heart failure designed to provide a seamless continuum of care from early-prevention strategies to end-stage options.
Lee Goldberg, MD, medical director of the heart failure and transplantation program, provides an overview of the program and explains what sets it apart.
A full continuum of care for every aspect of heart failure treatment:
- A multispecialty team including some of the nation's finest cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons, as well as specialists in cardiac imaging, pulmonary medicine, diabetes and rehabilitation medicine. Their experience spans the breadth and depth of heart failure care.
- The Heart Failure Program is closely integrated with the Mechanical-Assist Device Program and Heart Transplantation Program to offer a complete continuum of care as patients disease evolves.
- Penn has a dedicated team of certified heart failure nurses* who have specialized knowledge and training in heart failure care. This specialization in care leads to improved quality of life and a better life expectancy for heart failure patients.
