Thanks to advances in medical and surgical care, most people born with serious congenital heart defects are now surviving long into adulthood. Because no defect is permanently “cured,” individuals require lifelong follow-up care.
Boston Children's Hospital has a lifetime commitment to our patients through the Boston Adult Congenital Heart (BACH) and Pulmonary Hypertension Program. As part of the #1 ranked Heart Center, we offer a full range of inpatient and outpatient clinical services to adults with congenital heart disease and/or pulmonary hypertension, from diagnosis to cardiac catheterization and surgical repair. What’s more, we’re devoted to helping our patients maximize their physical, emotional, medical and social health.
Anne Marie Valente, MD - Outpatient Director, BACH Program
Our program cares for adult patients with all forms of congenital heart problems and/or pulmonary hypertension. We currently care for more than 6,000 patients, many who have been seen at Boston Children's Hospital their entire lives but others meeting us by referrals because of our international reputation. There's no patient too complex for our team.
