The University of Maryland Children’s Hospital knows that when a child is sick, the whole family is affected. So our pediatric heart specialists concentrate on treating the physical and emotional needs of our patients and their entire families. The Children's Heart Program cares for the entire family by helping families understand what’s happening with their child and by providing educational resources, lifestyle support and counseling as needed.

As an academic medical institution, the Children’s Heart Program also dedicates research efforts to improving the lives of infants and children with heart disease through clinical innovations and improved treatment options. The Children's Heart Program is part of The National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC), whose mission is to improve dramatically the outcomes of care for children with cardiovascular disease. As part of this network, the Children's Heart Program has access to pediatric cardiologists across North America who are collaborating on quality improvement and research projects for our youngest patients.
