Phoenix Children's

The Center for Heart Care at Phoenix Children’s, consistently named among the nation’s best by U.S. News & World Report, is committed to team-based care, bringing wide-ranging expertise together to meet the unique needs of each patient. With teamwork as its foundation, Phoenix Children’s has led the way in the southwest region, being the first in Arizona and among the first in the nation to offer several advanced cardiovascular procedures. These include Cone reconstruction for children with Ebstein’s anomaly, the implantation of the Harmony™ transcatheter pulmonary valve and the use of the CardioMEMS™ HF System to monitor children at home while they await a transplant. Phoenix Children’s averages 12- 15 heart transplants a year and has implanted one of the smallest and youngest total artificial hearts in its ever-expanding mechanical device program. It is also one of the only centers in the country accredited as an Adult Congenital Heart Disease Comprehensive Care Center by the Adult Congenital Heart Association. With high volumes and a complex case mix, Phoenix Children’s regularly earns a 3-Star Rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, with survival and risk-adjusted mortality rates that meet or exceed expectations. Looking to the future of care, Phoenix Children’s participates in cardiovascular research through its membership in the nationwide Pediatric Heart Network.
