1600 Rockland Road, Wilmington, DE 19803 | Get Map and Directions

The Nemours Cardiac Center was designed, from the beginning, to focus entirely on caring for children with heart disease, from the simplest to the most complex conditions. We provide specialized, comprehensive, high-quality cardiovascular care for patients at every age and stage, from before birth through adolescence, with a family-centered approach.

At the Nemours Cardiac Center, we provide the full spectrum of pediatric cardiac care — everything a child with heart disease could need in a centralized location: heart surgery, catheterization and electrophysiology, cardiac critical care and anesthesia, outpatient cardiology, diagnostic testing, as well as fetal diagnosis and coordination of care for after delivery.  

Our integrated model of care combines all critical cardiac disciplines into one department, creating high-quality care with a very clear mission.

Exceptional Outcomes & Quality Measures

The Nemours Cardiac Center was designed, from the beginning, to focus on the care of children with heart disease. That singular focus by everyone within the Cardiac Center is evident in both our outcomes and in the satisfaction of our patients and their families. We take great pride in our results and the comprehensive, dedicated cardiac care we provide.

Every member of our dedicated team of pediatric cardiac specialists is focused on and specializes in taking care of children with heart disease. This specialization results in excellent outcomes across the spectrum of pediatric cardiac disease.

The Nemours Cardiac Center has been an active participant in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Congenital Heart Surgery Database (CHSD) since 2005, and ranks among the best institutions for risk-adjusted outcomes (where the results take into account the complexity of the heart operation and the weight and age of infants).

In addition, a report on pediatric and congenital heart surgery (PDF) released by the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council (PHC4) shows that the Nemours Cardiac Center is a regional leader for surgical outcomes for children with congenital heart defects. We voluntarily participate in the PHC4 public reporting because we’re committed to transparency — being open and honest about our outcomes data.
