Heart Care Transition Clinic

What is the Heart Care Transition Clinic?

The Heart Care Transition Clinic is a specialized medical office for cardiac patients recently discharged from the hospital to receive follow-up medical care. The Lee Health Heart and Vascular Institute Heart Care Transition team works with your cardiologist to ensure you get the follow-up care you need.

It is important for patients with a diagnosis of heart failure, cardiomyopathy or A-fib to go to a follow-up medical appointment shortly after discharge from the hospital.

The Heart Care Transition Clinic has 2 locations for your convenience. The Fort Myers location is inside of the main atrium at HealthPark Medical Center. The Cape Coral location is near the Cape Coral Hospital on SE 8th Terrace. The clinic's are staffed by a specially trained cardiac nurse practitioner who conducts a detailed, in-depth visit with you.
