Director's Description

Saint Luke’s Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program provides an infrastructure to transition adolescents to adult cardiology, welcome newly diagnosed adults or adults with an established congenital heart condition to health care that emulates quality and continuity of care. Our commitment is to minimize fragmented care, improve quality of life outcomes and contribute to the evidence- based development of best practice guidelines which offer solutions for those with congenital heart disease.

ACHD patients benefit from talented board- certified cardiologists and physicians who are certified in numerous subspecialty areas with experience in managing special needs of ACHD patients, providing a comprehensive integrated level of care in an office, outpatient or hospital setting.
