St. Joseph's Children's Hospital: Expert Pediatric Heart Care in Tampa Bay

St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is a leading center for the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions in patients ranging from babies still in the womb to adults, performing more cardiovascular surgeries than any other hospital in Tampa Bay. Our new Heart Institute is scheduled to open in January 2014.  We are Tampa Bay's primary referral source for pediatric heart surgery and treatment of congenital heart defects before and after birth. Whether your child has a common heart condition or one of the rarest, we will design a custom treatment plan which includes long-term support of your family.

You and your family can take comfort in knowing that the warm, personal St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in your community has a greater success rate for the diagnosis and treatment of complex cardiac conditions than many of the larger well-known heart centers around the country. We are the only hospital in Tampa Bay to offer the nonsurgical Melody Valve therapy to children needing pulmonary valve replacement. Our new 35,000-square-foot Heart Institute will feature dedicated areas for pediatric pre-operative and post-operative care, new operating suites and three large catheterization labs which support our use of the Heart Team concept in treating your little one.

Your Child's Heart Care, in Our Experienced Hands
