About Us

The Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Sibley Heart Center is one of the top pediatric cardiac programs in the country. Combining expert cardiac care with a comprehensive approach to supporting families has helped rank us at No. 4 in the nation for pediatric heart care and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report.

Children’s is one of the highest volume pediatric heart centers in the country. You want an experienced team to care for your child. High volumes mean we can provide dedicated cardiac staff, hospital space and technology. Research shows that centers that perform a higher number of complex heart surgeries have better patient outcomes.

Our patient outcomes are also better than the national average.* At Sibley Heart Center, care does not stop at the bedside. We measure and track how our patients are doing after treatment. This allows us to evaluate our treatments and ensure we are providing high-quality care.
