The Center for Adults with Congenital (from birth) Heart Disease provides comprehensive care and support on one medical campus.
The transition from pediatric heart care to adult heart care can be a difficult time for many young patients. Heart Center staff work to ease that transition by talking with patients and families early in the teen years to explain the center’s seamless model of care.
Pediatric cardiologists and adult cardiologists work together and share expertise to care for both children and adults.
When pediatric patients are ready to transfer care to the adult program, a transition plan provides patients and families an opportunity to meet with cardiologists who treat adults during a pediatric clinic visit. Adults with congenital heart disease receive care at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, which is located next to St. Louis Children's Hospital.
