Director's Description

The Adult Congenital Heart Program at Texas Children's Hospital is the largest ACHD program in Texas and the most comprehensive ACHD program in region. Patients are able to be seen at sites across the greater Houston area (including The Woodlands, Sugarland, Katy, Clear Lake, Cy Fair and Kingwood) by providers specifically trained in ACHD care. Our ACH program cardiologists have combined training in adult cardiology, pediatric cardiology, and adult congenital cardiology giving the program a depth of knowledge unique to our center. There are a total of 14 board certified ACHD cardiologists with 7 dedicated fully to the ACH program. We also specialize in the care of cardiac issues that arise during pregnancy. We have a large program of cardiac, OB, and Maternal-Fetal-Medicine providers at Texas Children's Hospital- Pavilion for Women to care for cardiac issues during pregnancy. In November 2020, our program opened up a dedicated ACHD care unit at our Texas Children's Main Campus location. This one-of-a-kind floor is home to our outpatient and inpatient which is completely dedicated to our ACHD patients.
