Dear Colleagues,The Heart Center’s mission is to ocus on providing the highest quality, amily centered,most cost eective and comprehensive care to all patients, regardless o age, withcongenital heart disease. In doing so, the Heart Center at Columbus Children’s Hospitalis one o the leading congenital heart disease centers in the world or inants, childrenand adults.And we are accomplishing that mission without losing site o an important act: Atthe Heart Center, we treat patients and amilies, not customers. We provide expertiseand diagnostic and therapeutic technology that is second to none. At the same time,we believe that the patient deserves an ongoing relationship that is built not only ontechnical competence, but also on communication and trust. The patient, the amily andthe reerring physician are at the center o the circle, not o to the side. Thus, our motto:“Out in ront. By
side.”In the pages that ollow, we will provide inormation about all aspects o our Center.In each o the sections o the Center we will present data about our outcomes as theycompare to the rest o the state, country or world. We will also display our complicationrates, volumes, inormation about access to services and stories about individual patientsand amilies who have used the Center.
