Our expertise in treating heart conditions gives kids like Oliver a chance at life — 2 Comments

  1. Parents should feel comforted that, although their kids will need to deal with their heart defect for life, their heart care can always stay at Children’s Hospital. I survived a congenital heart defect after open heart surgery at Children’s in 1974. I returned a few years ago as an adult requiring further care for my congenital heart defect, and again underwent open heart surgery at Childrens. At the age of 47 — I am grateful that I can still go to Herma for care.

  2. When my daughter was diagnosed with ASD in January, it was an easy decision to take her to CHW and the Herma Heart Center. Previously undiagnosed for a year and a half, we knew we wanted to take her somewhere where they would provide her the very best care. We found it comforting to know that one of the best heart teams in the nation would be taking care of her. Now, she’s a thriving toddler and will be celebrating her 2nd birthday next month. Everyone at CHW was so helpful and comforting, and we couldn’t have made it through this without them.
