Congenital Heart Lifelong Bridge Care
Your priority as a parent is to pave the way for your child to be healthy and strong throughout life. Spectrum Health adult heart care and Helen DeVos Children's Hospital can make that happen. With both our children's and adult heart care nationally-recognized, there's no better place to be.
Your child’s congenital heart defect may already be completely corrected through surgery. It may be in an ongoing watchful state. Maybe you've been with us since the beginning. Or, you've moved to the area and need a new children's heart expert. In all cases, you know that your child's needs will require lifelong monitoring.
Here's how it works: Your child teams up with one of our leaders in children's heart care, any time (even pre-birth). When your child turns 18, we transition your child to the ideal adult heart expert for their condition but they'll still be with us. Every record, every visit, every medication, seamlessly tracked. Our doctors collaborate and consult, and each patient gets to live life with confidence, just as it should be. This is the beginning of a great relationship.
