The Advanced Heart Failure Program provides specialized cardiovascular care for heart failure patients. Our goal is to provide counseling, promote compliance, and offer advanced treatment options such as inotropic therapy or left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) that can contribute to improved outcomes – including decreased symptoms, improved quality of life, and reduced rates of hospital re-admission.
Under the direction of Jesus Almendral, M.D., FACC, Medical Director of the Advanced Heart Failure Center, the center provides both inpatient acute hospital treatment and outpatient management of heart failure, in collaboration with cardiologists and primary care physicians.
Our leading cardiovascular experts, part of Hackensack Meridian Health Jersey Shore University Medical Center, work closely with Program Manager, Dreamy James, APN, AACC, and our comprehensive care team to evaluate patients for the Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) and manage them post-implant.
