Nearly 1 in 110 babies are born with congenital heart disease, making it the No. 1 birth defect in the nation. Congenital heart disease causes nearly one-third of the infant deaths that result from birth defects. And it’s a diagnosis that requires lifelong care.

The Congenital Heart Center at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, is one of the largest and most experienced pediatric heart programs in the U.S. It is also an international referral center for kids with complex congenital heart disease.

Our center provides the most advanced care for infants, children, and adolescents with all forms of heart disease, as well as for adults born with congenital heart defects. We aim to lead the way in improving quality of life for patients with heart defects by:

Creating systems that allow congenital heart survivors to thrive

Connecting heart centers across the country to enhance standards of care

Enabling more research and faster discoveries

Providing personalized medicine

Developing innovative devices and therapies
