Director's Description

Tampa Bay Adult Congenital Heart Program at St. Joseph’s Hospital provides multidisciplinary comprehensive care for adults living with congenital heart disease. Our program is a collaboration between St. Joseph’s Hospital, Florida Medical Clinic and Pediatric Cardiology Associates. We care for over 2,000 patients with corrected and uncorrected congenital heart disease.

Our medical team is comprised of board certified Pediatric Cardiologists, board certified Adult Congenital Cardiologists, dedicated advanced care providers and registered nurses and adult cardiac sonographers, all with specific training and interest in congenital heart disease.

This collaboration between pediatric and adult cardiology provides easy transition between children's and adult services for our patients with congenital heart disease. St. Joseph’s Hospital has access with all adult internal medicine and adult sub-specialties including ancillary services and a great partnership with social workers to provide comprehensive services to our patients.

We have formed a team-approach to caring for our patients, forming a close alliance with surgeons, primary care providers, high-risk obstetricians, dentists, and other allied health services such as social workers specializing in congenital heart disease to provide the complex, cohesive, quality care our patients need, even to those with the rarest of congenital defects. Our care coordinators are experienced and dedicated to providing support to assure the welfare of our patients and coordinating necessary services for our patients and their families.

Contact the Adult Congenital Heart Center at St. Joseph's Hospital for more information about our services for children and adults with congenital heart defects.
