With that as our goal, we:

  • Achieve some of the highest patient survival rates in the U.S.
  • Perform more than 350 heart operations every year on very sick patients who require the most advanced, complex care
  • Were the first to successfully perform a new approach to heart transplants that may double the number of hearts available
  • Pioneered new surgical techniques that lower risk and ensure heart surgery is better tolerated by the tiniest babies
