A longstanding commitment to transparency
Here, we believe that every family deserves to know how much experience their hospital has treating their child's particular heart defect or condition.
We were one of the first pediatric heart programs in the nation – and we’re the still the only center in the state – to report our cardiac surgery outcomes publicly. And we're proud of what the data show: that we consistently deliver safe, successful care – even in highly complex cases.
But don't just take our word for it. See our outcomes for yourself on this website and through Conquering CHD's Hospital Navigator.

Leaders in heart surgery and minimally invasive procedures
We know that no two patients are the same, and neither are their hearts. That's why we provide highly individualized care for every patient. No matter your child's diagnosis, we will work together as a team to determine the best treatment option for your child, whether it's open heart surgery or a minimally invasive procedure.
