DOVER—Seacoast patients will benefit from the only Advanced Heart Failure Clinic in the region, thanks to a new collaboration between Wentworth-Douglass Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.
The clinic, which is now open at the Wentworth-Douglass Center for Heart Health in Portsmouth, provides comprehensive care from a multidisciplinary team of cardiologists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and nurses working together to determine the best line of treatment for patients with heart failure.
“This work alongside Mass General offers our patients the comfort of staying close to home, while continuing to receive the best possible care in a setting they’re familiar with,” said Denise Palumbo, RN, DNP, assistant vice president of Cardiovascular Services at Wentworth-Douglass.
Dr. Nilay Sutaria, a Mass General Hospital advanced heart failure and transplant cardiologist, will serve as Wentworth-Douglass’ advanced heart failure medical director. He will work closely with patients and referring physicians to introduce preventative early treatment measures that will help patients delay or avoid hospitalization.
“With an increasing number of people diagnosed with heart failure, the Advanced Heart Failure clinic at Wentworth-Douglass aims to help patients receive the care they need to improve their lives,” Sutaria said.
