Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery, Clinical Department of the Year

Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery | Ochsner Medical Center

Intense environment. Intense growth. Intense results.

This story says it all. Dr. Peeler’s last case of the day was a complex surgery on an infant needing a heart transplant. While a nurse was telling the family the procedure had gone well, the team got word a heart was now available and en route. They didn’t miss a beat. The team returned to the Operating Room, re-prepped the baby, and, well into the night, completed a successful transplant.

Here’s the data: More than 1400% in caseload growth over three years. 100% survival rate in neonatal heart surgery, child heart surgery and Norwood procedure. 99th percentile patient experience score. It’s no wonder their patient referrals now stretch from Dallas to Atlanta.

Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery at OMC-Jefferson Highway was recognized as Clinical Department of the Year at the 2018 Spirit of Leadership Awards.
