Heart Failure Treatment at Swedish: A Comprehensive Approach

Scott Center for Advanced Cardiac Support Cherry Hill

The Swedish Advanced Cardiac Support Program is for patients with heart failure. Heart failure occurs when the heart is unable to pump the necessary amount of blood throughout the body. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive approach to patient care that improves quality of life, reduces unnecessary hospitalizations and reduces mortality.

The Advanced Cardiac Support team includes physicians with special training in cardiology and heart failure, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and medical assistants. We have a dedicated pharmacist to assist with medication management, as well as a dedicated dietician to address common nutritional challenges associated with heart failure. We also provide access to an experienced social worker to help guide patients throughout the process of diagnosis and treatment.

Some patients with heart failure may need special treatment called mechanical circulatory support. This includes heart-lung machines called ECMO and mechanical heart pumps called LVADs. The Advanced Cardiac Support Program is a nationally recognized ELSO Gold Center of Excellence for ECMO, and we are fully accredited and certified LVAD program.

Appointments and referrals

A patient, patient's family member or referring provider can request an appointment. We are committed to seeing each patient as soon as possible.
