The Heart Centre for Children is based at the Children's Hospital at Westmead, Sydney. Over 100 staff work together to diagnose and treat more than 3500 babies, children and adolescents with congenital heart disease each year.  As the largest centre for childhood heart disease in NSW, we provide clinical care for complex procedures and run a world-class research programme.
