The Division of Pediatric Cardiology also offers in-utero diagnosis of congenital heart disease via fetal echocardiography through to adulthood. Our multidisciplinary team, comprised of experts in Cardiology, Nursing, and various Allied Health fields, works together to provide excellent care to children using a family-centred focus. Each year, we perform about 90 procedures in the cardiac catheterization lab for children and some adults with congenital heart defects.

Our team works collaboratively with other teams and programs within the hospital to provide cardiac care to children and adolescents including:

  • 30 bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit;
  • 5 bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit; and
  • 40 bed Acute Care Pediatric Unit.
