Kimberly Cuomo, CRNP from The Johns Hopkins Hospital Division of Cardiology

Kimberly Cuomo is a nurse practitioner in the Division of Cardiology with expertise in heart failure as well as the Cardiology Advanced Practice Provider manager. She joined the Division of Cardiology after completing her nursing degree at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and a master’s in nursing/nurse practitioner training from the University of Pennsylvania.

She helped start the Johns Hopkins Heart Failure Bridge Clinic, a nurse practitioner-run clinic intended to bridge patients discharged after heart failure hospitalization, a vulnerable time period for patients at high risk for readmission. As part of this role, she designed and implemented clinical protocols (including ambulatory IV diuresis and ED triage protocols to reduce the need for hospitalizations), provided operational oversight and established multidisciplinary and across-hospital collaborations to manage heart failure patients. 

Maureen Flood, CRNP from Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Division of General Internal Medicine

Maureen Flood earned her master's in social change and development and international economics at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and a master's of nursing from the University of Michigan. Prior to her nursing career, Maureen worked in global health and humanitarian support by supporting cervical cancer prevention and control programs as well as chronic disease service delivery improvement programs in Asia and Latin America. 

Since joining the Johns Hopkins Bayview Division of General Internal Medicine in 2018, Maureen has had a substantive impact in caring for underserved or chronically ill patient populations. She has led many meaningful initiatives to improve our patients’ health and lives, including establishing a medical nutrition therapy program in partnership with Mom’s Meals for MDPCP patients and creating focused interventions and intercurrent care for heart failure patients.
