The Congenital Heart Center, established in 2010, has been ranked as one of the top-50 pediatric heart centers in the country by U.S. News and World Report for the last nine years.  Our comprehensive services include cardiac imaging, diagnostic and interventional catheterization, electrophysiology, dedicated cardiovascular intensive care staff, and regional referral programs in heart failure / transplantation, adult congenital heart disease, and fetal echocardiography. Program volume has been growing secondary to increased referral patterns and regional population growth. Our new outpatient suite opened in December 2020 and is designed to treat all from fetal cardiology to ACHD. Our state-of-the-art two lab cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology suite opened in February of 2017, with dedicated staffing and anesthesia teams. We have one of the most comprehensive Cardiac Neurodevelopment programs in the region, providing a multitude of specialty services to our congenital heart population in the same office suite. Participation in investigator initiated and multi-center industry sponsored studies is ongoing within the Heart Center, with the support of an active clinical research department.

Atrium Health Levine Children’s Hospital (LCH) is a state-of-the-art facility open since 2007 in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina. LCH has 11 floors and 234 inpatient beds, including an on-site 20 bed PICU and CVICU covered 24/7 by in-house intensivists, Progressive Care Unit, 85-bed NICU, Inpatient Observation Unit, Pediatric Rehab Unit, 4 Pediatric Hospitalist teams, and Pediatric Emergency Department. We are committed to being the region’s leading provider of pediatric health care services.

LCH hosts a premier Pediatrics Residency Program, serves as a teaching hospital for students of the UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine, and offers excellent support for clinical research and quality improvement.  Additionally, Atrium Health and Wake Forest Baptist Health, including Wake Forest School of Medicine, officially joined together as a single enterprise, Atrium Health.  Wake Forest Baptist Health and Wake Forest School of Medicine will become the academic core of Atrium Health, building a second campus of the school of medicine in Charlotte, which is currently the largest city in the U.S. without a 4-year medical school. The growth of the school of medicine will expand existing academic research capabilities in a way that expands opportunities for clinical trials across a large, diverse market with some of the nation’s leading medical experts.

LCH has repeatedly been ranked among the Best Children’s Hospitals in the nation by U. S. News & World Report, most recently in eight pediatric specialties for 2020-2021 including Neonatology, Pulmonology, Cancer, Gastroenterology and GI Surgery, Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Nephrology, Neurology and Neurosurgery and Orthopedics. Carolinas Medical Center along with LCH has earned Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The Magnet program recognizes health-care organizations for their focus on improving patient care, safety and satisfaction. It also helps foster a collaborative culture for nurses, while working to advance standards and practices of care.
