Director's Description

The Washington Adult Congenital Heart (WACH) Program provides comprehensive cardiac care to ACHD patients. We
currently see patients in 5 locations throughout the DC/MD/VA area and are committed to being accessible to our
patients, be it through our expanding clinic options or our patients' ability to contact a clinician 24/7 if needed. We have
strong ties to other regional ACHD programs and often serve as a tertiary referral site for specialized care.
