Children's Mercy, Saint Luke's team up for Adult Congenital Heart Program
Thanks to advances in medical and surgical care, children born with congenital heart defects are now surviving long into adulthood. Patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) continue to need care throughout their lives and are best served by clinicians who understand their complex and unique needs.
Children’s Mercy works with area adult health systems, including the Mid America Heart Institute at Saint Luke’s, to provide CHD patients with seamless, continuous, advanced care as they transition to adulthood. The Adult Congenital Heart Program will treat all types of congenital heart conditions in adults, including those complicated by heart rhythm problems, heart failure and pacemakers.
