Oral Health Initiative

Every year, several thousand children and adults visit The Heart Center at Children’s Hospital for cardiology services. From outpatient visits to complex surgeries, The Heart Center provides a multitude of cardiovascular services to residents of Louisiana as well as some of our neighboring states.

Through the Louisiana Chapter of the Heart Gift Foundation, The Heart Center is also proud to provide surgical and interventional services to international patients from countries without the resources to provide repairs of congenital heart disease. In addition to the services provided at Children’s Hospital, our cardiologists travel to several off-site clinics and provide inpatient consultative services to our adult congenital heart patients at the new, state-of-the art University Medical Center.

Creating a team of knowledgeable professionals

Another fundamental goal of The Heart Center at Children’s Hospital is the education of physicians and allied health professionals in the specialized care provided by the Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery departments. The Heart Center provides subspecialty fellows, residents, medical students, nurses and other allied health professionals with valuable experience and academic teaching in the care of children with congenital heart disease.
