Welcome to the Congenital Heart Center

Since our first congenital heart defect repair in 1972, the Congenital Heart Center at OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois has continually expanded to become the region’s leading congenital heart center. Today, our center is the state’s only comprehensive congenital heart program outside of Chicago.

As a comprehensive congenital heart center, we offer a broad range of innovative treatments and services, ranging from the most complex heart surgeries to child and family support groups.

Each year, the Congenital Heart Center manages more than 9,000 clinic visits.

Approximately 250 cardiac surgeries per year are performed by our two full-time board-certified congenital heart surgeons for patients of all ages, from newborns to adults. Our board-certified pediatric cardiologists and adult congenital cardiologists are transforming the way we treat congenital heart disease.
