Members of the team have special expertise in both pediatric and adult cardiology so that they are fully able to understand how someone’s heart history will impact their future.

The Cardiac Developmental Outcomes Program provides early intervention for children who have congenital heart disease and are at increased risk for developmental delay, autism and ADHD as a result.

The Cardiac Imaging Program performs noninvasive heart imaging for the Heart Center. Program facilities have been specifically designed to facilitate cardiac testing and are staffed by experts in heart disease.

The Cardiology Transition Medicine team works with adolescents starting at age 14 to provide support and education so that by the time they are in their early 20s, they can confidently transition to adult congenital heart disease care.

At the Cardiovascular Genetics Program, a team of doctors, advanced practice providers, genetic counselors and nurses provides specialized care tailored to the diagnosis and long-term management of heart conditions with a genetic cause.
