The Children’s Heart Center at LPCHS is ranked among the nation’s top pediatric cardiac programs and includes over 50 pediatric cardiologists and cardiovascular scientists within the Division of Pediatric Cardiology who collectively provide clinical care, teach, and perform clinical, translational and basic research. LPCHS and the Moore Heart Center have expanded, moving into a new building in late 2017, and will open three new, pediatric catheterization laboratories in June 2018. Two of the labs are dedicated for interventional cardiology with state-of-the-art Toshiba/Canon equipment and hybrid capability. There is collaboration with adult cardiology and neuro/interventional radiology. Patients range in age from premature neonates to adults, and patient complexity and acuity are amongst the highest in the nation. We perform 1100-1200 cases per year, with approximately one-half of these cases being interventional. The CVICU is a 24-bed dedicated unit (to expand to 36) that provides all forms of cardiovascular intensive care for children as well as adults with congenital and acquired heart disease. A full range of clinical services is available, including mechanical circulatory support for heart failure patients with ventricular assist devices (Thoratec, Berlin Heart, HeartMate II, HeartWare) and ECMO.
