While we treat some of the most complex cases, our outcomes are well above established national benchmarks.

It has been demonstrated that improved clinical outcomes are closely linked to centers with high surgical volumes. As a center’s activity increases, cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, critical care specialists, nurses, perfusionists and other cardiac team members become more experienced caring for patients with congenital heart disease.


Our outcomes are 35% better than national benchmarks.

Our average hospital mortality for the most complex neonatal procedures was 11.9% compared to 17.0% globally
