Celebrating Heart Month with Connecticut Children's Medical Center!
Check out Renee's interview with Beth Garza, cardiology patient, and Dr. Shai, Cardiologist, at Connecticut Children's. The two discuss CCMC's innovative care for childhood and adult congenital heart disorders.
"Connecticut Children’s is proud to be the first and only hospital in Connecticut accredited by the Adult Congenital Heart Association to care for children & adults with CHD, as well as a top 50-ranked cardiology and heart surgery program by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals survey.
Connecticut Children’s Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program provides compassionate and comprehensive care to patients born with CHD through adulthood. This program follows more than 1,000 adult CHD patients annually. Beth Garza, 29, Enfield, is one of them. She was diagnosed at birth with bi-cuspid aortic valvular stenosis with regurgitation. For more than 2 decades, she has had regular appointments and visits with the Connecticut Children’s cardiology team." -CCMC
