It was a very busy year for Texas Children’s Heart Center as we extended cardiac services to the newly opened Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women. Expectant mothers now have access to a full spectrum of fetal therapies, and the new facility offers the highest level of newborn intensive care. Our fetal cardiology team continues to build collaborations with fetal medicine specialists to diagnose heart conditions in utero and provide state-of-the-art fetal diagnostic interventions.

By providing accurate and timely information online, we aim to help referring physicians, patients and families make the most informed decisions about their patient care.

Texas Children’s Heart Center is able to provide every procedure available, and through our innovations in research and ongoing commitment to improving all aspects of patient care, we strive for the very best possible treatment for our cardiac patients.
