Adult Congenital Heart Disease
The Adult Congenital Heart Program at Stanford—a collaboration between Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford and Stanford Health Care—is an Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Accredited Program. This makes the Adult Congenital Heart Program one of the first comprehensive care centers in the U.S. for congenital heart disease patients.
Our program focuses on a smooth transition from pediatric cardiology to adult heart care that continues to provide comprehensive, ongoing care to adult patients throughout their life.
Accreditation by the ACHA ACHD acknowledges that a center has the capability to bring high quality of care to congenital heart diseaes patients. This includes:
Seamless transition from pediatric to adult oriented care with a highly specialized program specifically designed for adolescent and adult patients. Visit iheartchange.org to find resources for pediatric patients with congenital heart disease who are transitioning to adult care.
