Many congenital heart programs focus on pediatrics and stop caring for patients when they become adults. Our clinic is different. Adult and teen patients still require the skills of a doctor specializing in congenital heart defects. That's why Providence created the Providence Adult and Teen Congenital Heart (PATCH) Program.
We are an ACHD Accredited Comprehensive Care Center by the Adult Congenital Heart Association—a mark of distinction for congenital heart disease programs, endorsed by the major cardiology societies.
PATCH is conveniently located in the same location as our pediatric congenital heart disease clinic, providing a seamless transition from pediatric to adult medical care, including a bi-monthly support group for teens and young adults transitioning to adult care.
Located on the Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center campus, we can provide comprehensive adult cardiac care, drawing on expertise of providers specializing in both congenital and acquired heart disease.
