Heart Centre for Children

The Heart Centre for Children is based at the Children's Hospital at Westmead, Sydney. We are part of the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network Cardiac Services Programme. 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".

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.
