UF Health Congenital Heart Center Renovations Underway
The UF Health Congenital Heart Center team members are highly-skilled, highly-qualified physicians and clinical staff in the field of pediatric and adult congenital heart care. They employ current approaches and technologies in care to solve even the most complex congenital heart defects, and provide expert care for patients. Families travel from across the state, the country and even around the world, looking for answers, and they offer an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to help all of their patients to not only extend but also improve the quality of their lives.
They recognize the essential role parents and families play in helping young and adult patients live with their congenital heart disease. The center incorporates medical and surgical practices to provide seamless care to patients and open communication to their families.
Because of that, new renovations are underway to help further support CHC patients and their families while receiving state-of-the-art care here at UF Health. Construction began in April and will be completed by the end of July 2019.
A few amenities in the renovated space will include:
- Four echocardiogram, ECHO, rooms
- One exercise ECHO room
- Triage space for 2 families
- Two ADA family friendly toilets
- 11 exam rooms
- One consult room with video conference capabilities
