Director's Description

Colorado's Adult and Teen Congenital Heart Program (CATCH) is a multi- institutional program with 2 core hospitals (Children's Hospital Colorado and UC Health) 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), 2 ACHD dedicated social workers (one at each hospital) and 3 congenital heart surgeons, in addition to electrophysiologists, interventionalists, and MRI/CT specialists all with special training in congenital heart disease. We have regular ACHD specific multi-disciplinary conferences where we discuss, as a
group, which of the 2 hospitals offers the best location for invasive treatments (surgery or cath) 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; Loveland, CO; Cheyenne, WY; Casper, WY; and Billings, Montana, with expectations of Grand Junction, CO in the future.
