Your Family’s Partner in Heart Wellness

Fetal Cardiac Program

Nearly one percent of all babies born each year — approximately 40,000 children — come into the world with congenital (present at birth) heart defects. If doctors diagnose your baby with a congenital heart defect, specialists at The Heart Center at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children can help. We partner with experts at the Center for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies to provide the most complete care possible.

From conception to birth and beyond, The Heart Center provides comprehensive cardiac care throughout your child’s life. Our goal is that each baby receives the necessary treatment to live a long, healthy life.  

You can trust in our expertise. We’re recognized as one of the top healthcare facilities for children with congenital heart defects:

  • We rank among the top 20 children’s hospitals in America for cardiac surgery outcomes.
  • We also have a 97.7% survival rate – the highest of any pediatric cardiology program in Central Florida (The Society of Thoracic Surgeons).
  • Orlando Health Arnold Palmer is ranked a “Best Children’s Hospital” by U.S. News and World Report.
  • Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies is ranked in neonatology by U.S. News and World Report, offering the top newborn care in Florida.
