Our outpatient program offers education, symptom management and monitoring to heart failure patients and their families. Our goal is to strengthen patients’ cardiovascular health and improve their quality of life. Studies show that patients referred to heart failure centers often result in:

  • Lower hospital readmission rates
  • Improved heart failure status
  • Shorter length of follow-up visits
  • Improved medication compliance
  • Improved patient satisfaction
  • Improved quality of life


Our Heart Failure Team

  • Medical Director: Michael Mumma, MD
  • Clinic Manager: Abby Moliterno, MBA, Manager of Heart and Vascular Ambulatory Services


Customized Treatment Plans
We work with each patient to create a plan of outpatient clinic visits, frequent symptom and weight tracking by phone, expert pharmacological regimes, activity and dietary guidelines, and ongoing communication with their primary care physician. This plan helps patients and their families manage changes in diet, medications and other factors that can affect heart health.

Our services include:

  • 24/7 pager access to an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner
  • Diagnostic clinical education
  • Functional status assessment
  • Dietary education and reinforcement
  • Patient and family education
  • Pacemaker function optimization


Physician referral is required for admission to the Heart Failure Center. Medicare and most insurance plans cover this service. For more information, call 941-917-PUMP (7867).
