About the Texas Adult Congenital Heart Center
The Texas Adult Congenital Heart Center at Baylor Medicine in Houston, Texas, provides adult congenital heart disease patients a safe, smooth and uninterrupted transition of healthcare from pediatric specialists in the early stages of their lives, to a medical team capable of addressing their adult healthcare needs and lifestyles, enabling these patients to live longer, healthier lives.
Smooth Transition from Pediatric to Adult Care
The Texas Adult Congenital Heart Center’s integrated network of specialized care providers, associated hospitals and shared technologies enable patients with congenital heart disease to receive outstanding care from birth to old age.
At the age of 18 or older, patients have a seamless continuation of care from pediatrics to an adult setting. Our multidisciplinary team of experienced congenital heart disease specialists can continue to advise patients on health and lifestyle choices of their adult needs, whether that be physical challenges, exercise options or family planning appropriate of their physiology.
We began as a collaborative effort across Baylor Medicine Cardiology, Texas Children’s Hospital and the Texas Heart Institute at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. Today, we proudly offer the highest level of comprehensive and compassionate medical and surgical care, backed by the combined technologies and research of our world-class medical institutions.
