On September 21, 2019, more than 250 patients and families from the Cardiac Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) came together to celebrate the second annual Cardiac Family Fun Day! The event gave patients and families the opportunity to reconnect with their medical teams and share their experiences with other Cardiac families.
The Cardiac Center at CHOP cares for babies prior to birth, infants, children, and young adults with congenital and acquired heart conditions. Our team is one of the largest and most accomplished in the world. We have more than 125 experts, including pediatric cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, critical care intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, advanced practice nurses and physician assistants. These experts are pioneers in the treatment of congenital and acquired heart conditions, and international leaders in diagnosis, patient care, research and education.
