Director's Description

The Seattle Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program is a collaboration between the University of Washington Medical Center and Seattle Children’s Hospital and is among the largest ACHD programs in the country with 7 physicians with ACHD board certification. The Seattle ACHD program is an ACHA accredited Comprehensive Care Center, one of the first 5 programs to receive such accreditation nationally. The Seattle ACHD program provides comprehensive care to adolescents and adults with congenital heart disease. ACHD outpatient services are offered at several satellite and outreach clinics. There is ACHD expertise in subspecialties including advanced imaging,
cardiac surgery, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, cardio- obstetrics and cardiopulmonary exercise testing. The program and patients are supported by a program manager, program coordinators, nurses, and a nurse practitioner. We train senior ACHD fellows and rotating cardiology and pediatric cardiology fellows.
