Patient Resources

We’re dedicated to supporting you and your family throughout your journey, providing a variety of educational resources to inform and empower you along the way. 

Educational Videos

To help children with heart problems understand their diagnosis and potential treatments, we’ve created a series of animated videos for kids. Featuring Ruby, a friendly armadillo, Beau, a kind bison, and their friends, the Blings, the videos take the viewer through the diagnosis and treatment plan for a variety of complex heart conditions.


Books@Heart is an early childhood reading program, focused on improving cognitive development and parent–child bonding of the youngest of infants in our Heart Center. Every infant admitted to the Heart Center under 1 year old is eligible for the program. The structure mimics the outpatient pediatrician’s schedule when these babies would otherwise have received anticipatory guidance about reading. Babies receive books at birth or at their first admission to the Heart Center, and then at ages 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months. 

The launch and execution of Books@Heart is made possible by many generous donations. Please consider donating or sending books from our wish list along with a message for our heart warriors.

Project ADAM®

In partnership with Project ADAM and local schools, we’re helping prevent the deaths of children and adolescents due to sudden cardiac arrest by making automated external defibrillators (AEDs) readily available.
