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.  The SCHN Cardiac Services Vision is "Best Cardiac Care - Heart and Mind".

Your Child's Surgery

We know that coming in to hospital for the first time can be a difficult experience for both patients and families but we're here to help.  Among other resources, we have put together a guide that outlines what to expect and how to prepare for it.  Read more here.

 

Patient Stories

Every child's journey is a little different but sometimes it can help to know what other families have experienced.  Read about some of the journeys here.
