Thank you for taking an interest in the Babies Heart Fund. By joining us, you are supporting our mission to advance the treatment and awareness of pediatric and congenital heart disease.
The Babies Heart Fund was founded in 1986 by a few dedicated family members of one young patient. The family was so touched by the level of care and humanity they received when their child needed it most they wanted to find a way to give back and help the Division of Cardiology. We provide critical funding that goes toward innovative clinical research, quality patient care and excellence in medical education at Columbia University Medical Center.
