Watch: KCH, Cincinnati Children’s provide pediatric heart care close to home

Kentucky Children’s Hospital and Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute joined forces last year to provide advanced pediatric heart care close to home for patients in Kentucky.

It’s a collaboration that combines the strength of UK HealthCare’s advanced pediatric and adult congenital heart care with Cincinnati Children’s nationally ranked experts in pediatric cardiac care and surgery.

The program is a collaboration at every level, says Dr. James Quintessenza, chief of pediatric cardiothoracic surgery at UK HealthCare. World-class heart surgeons at Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute work together with cardiology experts at Kentucky Children’s Hospital to provide the full spectrum of high-quality heart care – from assessment and diagnosis to complex surgery and post-surgical care.

We caught up with Dr. Quintessenza and Dr. Scottie Day, interim chair of the UK Department of Pediatrics and physician in chief at Kentucky Children’s Hospital, to learn more about the exciting collaboration. Watch below and find out how experts at UK and Cincinnati Children’s are helping kids and families across the region.
