Backed by the state’s only academic medical center and Mississippi's only children’s hospital, the pediatric specialists of Children’s Heart Center (CHC) offer comprehensive, complex cardiovascular specialty care to pediatric patients of all ages, fetal to adolescent. We have added several providers to our Heart Center faculty and continue to expand the care we provide by growing our outreach services. We now offer pediatric cardiology services in Tupelo and on the Gulf Coast, and have outreach clinics in Iuka, Hattiesburg, Meridian and Pascagoula, including additional fetal echo and adult congenital services.
Located at the Kathy and Joe Sanderson Tower at Children’s of Mississippi, we provide pediatric-specific imaging services, operating rooms, our outpatient Children’s Heart Center clinic, and a pediatric cardiac intensive care unit. Every detail of our advanced facility has been carefully planned to support family-centered care and to match the skills of our expert faculty and staff. Together, they will allow us to continue providing the quality, patient-focused care that our children deserve.
