Director's Description

The University Hospitals Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program provides multidisciplinary comprehensive care for adults living with congenital heart disease. Our program is a collaboration between Rainbow Babies & Children’s and the Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute offering seamless transition of care between pediatric and adult services for our congenital heart patients. We care for over 500 patients with various forms of repaired and unrepaired congenital heart disease.

Our medical team is comprised of board certified cardiologists with training in Pediatric Cardiology, Adult Congenital Cardiology, and Adult Cardiology. We also have advanced practice care providers and nurses dedicated to the care of adult congenital patients. Our surgical team brings decades of experience in treating adult patients with congenital heart disease, including the most complex forms.

Our goal is to provide high quality and compassionate medical care for all patients, to provide on-going and lifelong education for patients and medical professionals, and to carry out research that will ultimately help to improve the quality of life for the ACHD population.
