We provide expert, comprehensive cardiac care to children and young adults with congenital heart conditions.
Rebuilding Our Heart Institute and Earning Your Trust
Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital spent months conducting a comprehensive review of its Heart Institute, with the goal of reopening its heart surgery program with patient safety at the forefront. As part of this review, a group of national pediatric heart experts conducted a top-to-bottom clinical evaluation and recommended a series of important changes. Over the course of the last year, the Heart Institute has implemented the recommended changes, which include industry-leading training programs and rigorous data analysis of patient safety measures. We conducted a national search for new heart surgeons and hired a team of exceptionally talented surgeons, each of whom brings a career of success in highly specialized pediatric or neonatal cardiothoracic surgery to the Tampa Bay region. Johns Hopkins remains proud and deeply committed to being part of this community. We continue to strive to earn your trust.
