10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM

Fall River, MA  – Sarah S. Brayton Nursing Center, a Genesis Health Care SM skilled nursing facility, is proud to announce the addition of its new Cardiac Management Program and Director of Cardiac Services, Jarvis Lambert, MD of Southcoast Physicians Network/Southcoast Physicians Group, part of Southcoast Health System.

Sarah S. Brayton Nursing Center now offers enhanced cardiac management for patients with a variety of cardiac diagnoses.  Patients diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) or patients recovering from Cardiothoracic Surgery, Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting, Myocardial Infarction, Cardiac Arrhythmias and more will benefit from this level of post-hospital care. 

The goal of the program is to provide patients with successful disease management along with the education and support required to lead a healthy lifestyle when they return home.  Services provided under the direction of our Board Certified Cardiologist include:

  • Patient rounds led by the Director of Cardiac Services
  • Board Certified Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistant on-site daily
  • Clinical staff specially trained in cardiac management
  • Specialized cardiac diets and nutrition management
  • Comprehensive patient/family education
  • Patient care integration with rehabilitation therapists
  • Home discharge planning support and re-integration to the community with appropriate services.

“Cardiac Management at Sarah S. Brayton Nursing Center allows patients to receive the specialized care they need in a focused setting,” explained Dr. Lambert, MD. “The time spent in cardiac management allows the patient to get well enough to avoid a relapse and a subsequent re-hospitalization. Weekly, patients will have the opportunity to be seen by a Cardiologist to ensure the best possible outcome and a successful discharge home.”


Sarah S. Brayton Nursing Center also offers Rehabilitation Therapy, Transitional, Short Stay and Long Term Care. For more information about Sarah S.
