New Pediatric Cardiac Care Unit in Central Texas
Dell Children’s Medical Center celebrated the opening of its new pediatric cardiac care unit, a part of UT Health Austin’s Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease
Dell Children’s Medical Center hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the morning of Tuesday, June 25, 2019 to celebrate the opening of the Pediatric Cardiac Care Unit within the Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, a clinical partnership between UT Health Austin and Dell Children’s Medical Center. This new pediatric cardiac care unit is a 24-bed inpatient unit that includes state-of-the-art technology and is the first and only dedicated pediatric cardiac care unit in Central Texas. As a result, more infants, children, adolescents, and adults diagnosed with congenital and acquired heart conditions will be able to receive the most advanced care close to home.
The Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease is led by one of the world’s leading pediatric heart surgeons, Charles Fraser, Jr., MD, who serves as the Chief of Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery for the Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease. He, along with his team of dedicated cardiologists, congenital heart surgeons, anesthesiologists and cardiac critical care physicians are creating a world-class pediatric cardiac and congenital heart disease program for infants and children. The Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease was established in September 2018 at Dell Children’s.
Dr. Fraser says, “It’s a big step for the hospital as well as the patients and families. Having a dedicated cardiac intensive care unit is really state-of-the-art. It is consistent with the very best programs anywhere in the world and it emphasizes a level of commitment that we have to the patients and their families.”
