At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we believe that every child deserves to have a happy, healthy future. That’s why cardiac research is so important to improving the outcomes for children with heart conditions. Research is also a key part of our hospital’s mission.
The Heart Institute includes a team of clinical and basic science researchers focused on improving the understanding and treatment of heart disease. Here are some highlights of our team’s innovative work and research projects:
In total, there are more than 100 different research studies going on at our Heart Institute – all designed to improve the health and well-being of your child.
The Heart Institute at Children’s Colorado is also part of the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative, an initiative to improve outcomes for kids with congenital heart disease. This allows us to work with many other national pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery centers to share information and improve the quality of life for kids with single ventricle cardiac anatomy.
