The Children's Hospital Foundation Heart Center at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR)

Congenital heart disease is one of the most common birth defects worldwide, occurring in about 1 in 100 live births. Early detection enables families and their medical team to plan for delivery and develop a cardiac care plan in advance. As you prepare to welcome your new baby into the world, it’s comforting to know that Central Virginia’s only comprehensive, full-service children’s heart center is right here.

From fetal cardiology to interventional cardiac catheterization and surgery, our team works together to ensure that our heart patients thrive into adulthood. The multidisciplinary Children's Hospital Foundation Heart Center team is led by Dr. Thomas Yeh, the commonwealth's most experienced and accomplished pediatric cardiac surgeon.
