Children’s Cardiomyopathy Program Awarded Accreditation

NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital has been named an accredited center of care by the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF), a national nonprofit organization committed to improving the health outcomes and quality of life for children with cardiomyopathy. The Hospital’s Program for Pediatric Cardiomyopathy, Heart Failure, and Transplantation, directed by pediatric cardiologist Linda J. Addonizio, MD, provides treatment for children and young adults suffering from cardiomyopathy, heart failure due to cardiomyopathy or congenital heart disease, and those in need of heart transplantation.

The accreditation recognizes the consistent, high quality cardiac care and the specialized disease management the Hospital provides to children with cardiomyopathy, including its high volume of approximately 240 patients in a one-year period, range of clinical services and expertise, and its academic affiliation and status as a research hospital.

“The accreditation validates the Hospital’s expertise in offering high quality, comprehensive family-centered care to children with cardiomyopathy.”
