Meet our Valve Clinic Coordinator
Hi! My name is Jillian Mascia BSN, MSN, ARNP, FNP-BC. I am the Valve and Structural Heart Coordinator here at Holy Cross Hospital. My expertise lies in managing care for TAVR and Heart Failure Patients.
I am a graduate of Nova Southeastern University’s Nursing School. As a student, I was one of the very lucky few to have had the opportunity to complete my practicum hours in the CVICU. It was at this moment that I knew what my next goal would be: to become a heart nurse. My nursing career officially started at Holy Cross hospital in 2010. For three years I was a bedside nurse on the Intermediate Care Unit. This laid a great framework for me as a healthcare professional. In 2013, I decided it was time to take my nursing skills to the next level and I transferred to the CVICU. Recovering fresh open-heart patients taught me the importance of critical thinking, working efficiency and what patient centered healthcare should be.
In the fall of 2015 I again became a graduate of Nova Southeastern University—this time, at the master’s level. Shortly thereafter, I acquired my current position at Holy Cross Hospital. Working in the Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics Clinic we see many patients. Our clinic offers expertise in heart failure, valvular heart disease, oncological heart disease, adult congenital heart disease, cardiac resynchronization therapy and soon, pulmonary hypertension. The only commonality amongst these patients is they trust us to care for their hearts. No two patients are the same and we take pride in treating patients like they are part of our family.
As the Valve and Structural Heart Coordinator, it is my goal to ensure the safe and holistic care of each and every patient that comes through the door. As a team, we hold weekly meetings discussing possible surgical candidates for our TAVR Program. This enables us to recognize the most important issues for the pre, intra and post treatment needs. Ours is a strong and successful program, and we continue to do our best for you and stay current with the ever-changing technology of medicine.
We look forwarding to working together with you in creating positive impacts on your heath!
