Director's Description

This is a long-standing ACHD program with a commitment to patient-oriented quality care. We see patients from a wide radius around Hershey/Harrisburg. There are good resources here for here for most ACHD needs - pregnancy, arrhythmias, imaging, heart failure, intervention, CT surgery. Most cardiac and all multi-organ transplants referred where appropriate.  We have 8 half- day clinic sessions a week.  We see patients here at the main hospital and at 2 other sites about 20 minutes from the main hospital.
