Director's Description

Established in 2000, the COACH Program is one of the nations largest and leading ACHD programs. Patients are seen at Nationwide Children's Hospital and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, two of Ohio's premiere medical centers. Patient care is individualized using the most appropriate resources from each institution. In addition to daily main campus clinics in Columbus, we have clinics throughout Ohio including Dayton, Lewis Center, Lima,
Mansfield, Portsmouth and Zanesville.


Our staff consists of six ACHD board certified cardiologists. Each physician brings unique training and interests to the program including complex congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, pregnancy and ACHD, athletes and heart disease and heart failure. Our nurse practitioners and nurses are involved in patient education and community activities. Our dedicated social worker provides inpatient and outpatient services and appreciates the unique needs of our patient population. Additionally, our program boasts congenital experts in cardiac imaging, electrophysiology,
cardiothoracic surgery and transcatheter intervention.

The COACH Program has long-standing relationships with sub-specialty services including maternal-fetal medicine, heart failure and transplant. This collaborative approach allows for a highly-specialized plan of care, ensuring the highest patient outcomes.
