Director's Description

The Le Bonheur ACHD program is an integral part of the Le Bonheur Heart Institute, which is home for the faculty in the divisions of Pediatric Cardiology and Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC). The Le Bonheur Heart Institute is part of Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN, and serves patients throughout western Tennessee, northern Mississippi, and eastern Arkansas. The ACHD program has played a role in the Le Bonheur Heart Institute’s achieving national recognition by US News and World Report as a Top Ten Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery program for the past two years. The Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery program has achieved a top tier, 3- star rating by the Society for Thoracic Surgeons. The Le Bonheur Heart Institute has earned this recognition because of excellent clinical outcomes and strong
subspecialty programs that work in a multidisciplinary fashion with a commitment to patient- centered care and quality improvement.

Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital has been recognized for its excellent cardiac and cardiac surgery care. Patients and families that choose Le Bonheur recognize that “the heart” that is emblazoned on our logo represents dedication, commitment and empathy towards our patients. The Le Bonheur ACHD team understands the vast needs that are associated with life- long cardiac care and we aim to partner with our patients and families. “The Heart” in the Le Bonheur logo means different things to different people, but within the Le Bonheur ACHD team “the heart” means so much more.
