The Cardiac Center At The Children's Hospital Of Philadelphia Celebrates Heart Awareness Month

Babies who are prenatally diagnosed with a congenital heart defect may be delivered in the Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the world's first delivery unit exclusively for babies with congenital conditions. The Philadelphia Adult Congenital Heart Center, a joint venture between The Children's Hospital and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, offers expert care for adults living with congenital heart defects.  

The Cardiac Center team includes pediatric and adult cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, cardiac nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, respiratory therapists, child life specialists, operating room technicians and many others – all committed to providing a continuum of care for patients with CHD from before birth through adulthood.

"We are also urging people to raise funds for more research and advocate for important issues to help children with the most vulnerable little hearts," added Shaddy.

Children's Hospital has created a customizable toolkit to help families and individuals learn about pediatric heart disease. The downloadable toolkit includes tips on how to spread the word about CHD by sharing a story or promoting a fundraising event with the media, reaching out to legislators or writing an editorial for the local newspaper.
