At Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children (RMHC), our expert team of specialists are trained in the unique conditions of adults with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD).

Congenital heart disease is an abnormality of the heart structure or function that occurs before birth. As medical care and technology advance, more infants and children with congenital heart defects are going on to live full lives.

Specialized Multidisciplinary Care for ACHD

As children with congenital heart disease become adolescents and adults, they often require specialized ongoing treatment to manage their condition.

Our specialists in adult and pediatric cardiology and heart surgery are board-certified and fellowship-trained in the complex treatment of these conditions. Our leading Pediatric Heart Center provides cutting-edge care for children with congenital heart defects, and our physicians continue to care for ACHD patients through adulthood.
