Colorado's Adult and Teen Congenital Heart program (CATCH) is a multi-institutional program with the 2 core hospitals (Colorado Children's Hospital and University of Colorado Hospital) providing care to our CATCH patients. We currently have 7 ACHD trained physicians as well as 2 advanced practice providers (one at each hospital), and 4 ACHD dedicated nurse coordinators (2 at each hospital) and three congenital heart surgeons, in addition to electrophysiologists, interventionalists, and MRI/CT specialists all with special training in congenital heart disease We have a regular ACHD specific multi-disciplinary conferences where we discuss as as group which of the 2 hospitals offers the best location for invasive treatments (surgery or caths) based on patient needs regardless of age. We offer clinics most weeks 5 days a week at both hospitals, in addition to offering outreach clinics in Colorado Springs, CO, Longmont, Colorado, Cheyenne Wyoming, Casper Wyoming, and Billings Montana, with expected expansion to Grand Junction in 2019.
