The Johns Hopkins Children's Heart Surgery program was established in 2012 to benefit children with congenital heart disease through shared clinical excellence and collaborative research at three centers:

  • Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, St. Petersburg
  • Florida Hospital for Children, Orlando
  • The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore

This world-class program unites the strengths of pediatric cardiovascular surgeons at all three locations.

The addition of a Florida Hospital for Children in Orlando as a third center provided still more opportunities for collaboration in treatment, research and education aimed at providing compassion, state-of-the-art care while developing new approaches in treating congenital heart disease.

Johns Hopkins has long been a pioneer in children's heart surgery. In 1944, doctors at The Johns Hopkins Hospital performed surgery on a young child with a complex congenital heart defect. The "blue baby" operation, as it was popularly called, was the first of many advances that made Johns Hopkins a world leader in cardiovascular surgery.

Working together and using evidence-based research, the surgeons are developing innovative approaches aimed at improved outcomes for children with congenital heart disease-from infancy through adulthood.
