Our Team

The combination of the many types of pediatric heart specialists in the Heart Center ensures every patient has access to expert diagnosis and treatment.  

The Heart Center is located in the hospital’s main inpatient building, West Tower, on floors 15 and 17 through 20. The close proximity of the Heart Center’s treatment and administrative areas enables team members to respond quickly to patient and family needs or emergencies and promotes collaboration among the center’s multidisciplinary team.

Patients and their families visiting the Texas Children’s Heart Center should check in on the 20th floor of the West Tower.
