Heart Failure Care and Treatment

Inpatient/Outpatient Coordinated Care

Hoffman Heart and Vascular Institute is proud have been the first in New England to offer a dedicated Heart Failure Inpatient/Outpatient Coordinated Care unit. Our newly renovated Congestive Heart Failure unit offers patients 20 single and four double rooms, each specifically equipped and staffed to provide specialized care for patients experiencing all stages and types of heart failure. We offer some of the most sophisticated therapies to treat heart failure including ultrafiltration, a mechanical method of fluid removal. We hold multidisciplinary rounds daily to provide a holistic approach to the medical, physical, and emotional needs of our patients and their families. The Heart Failure service is committed to providing high quality care for all of our patients.
