The team of heart failure specialists at St. Elizabeth’s Center for Heart Failure Treatment are experts at diagnosing and treating heart failure as well as other complex conditions involving the heart.
The multidisciplinary team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, and support staff work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan.
The center has been recognized as:

- A U.S. News & World Report “best hospitals” for 2016-2017 in the Boston Metro area for our treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF)
- A regional center for the IV “Lasix Spa” which is a dedicated clinic to help patients manage unneeded fluid retention and salt to promote better heart function
- One of New England’s busiest centers for CardioMEMS HF: an implantable, wireless monitoring sensor for outpatients with heart failure.
