​Children's Heart Center

About Us

The Children’s Heart Center is an OU Medicine Center of Excellence located in The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center and the OU Children’s Physician’s clinics in Oklahoma City. The Children’s Heart Center is located in the only free-standing multispecialty hospital facility with a level 1 pediatric trauma program in the state. We have the only dedicated pediatric cardiovascular intensive care unit in Oklahoma. 

Our team also teaches the physicians of tomorrow for the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. This means our patients have access to benchmark practice standards, leading-edge care, advanced treatment methods, state-of-the-art technology and world-class research.

Children's Heart Family

Our success comes from our ceaseless commitment to be the premier enterprise for advancing health care, medical education and research for the community, state and region. We also believe it is imperative that we provide care that is focused on the emotional needs of our patients, as well as their physical needs.

In doing so, we engage each patient in the care they receive, while also meeting the needs of the patient’s parents and family members. We maintain an absolute commitment to innovation, to compassionate care and to ongoing quality-improvement initiatives. And we provide age-appropriate explanations of medical procedures, entertaining distractions from painful procedures, and activities for parents and siblings during hospital stays.
