Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Leonard "We understand that when a child is ill, the entire family is affected. So we believe our responsibility is not only to the child, but also to mom and dad, siblings, grandparents and anyone closely involved in our patient's care. As a team, we've dedicated our hands and mind even our own hearts toward creating an environment of health and healing for children with heart defects. This means keeping a family together in the hospital and providing support services to ease the burdens of illness"
