Pioneers Advocating Together for Congenital Hearts

As the management of congenital heart disease has advanced there are more people than ever living with CHD. With the increased access to electronic medical records and the available information online many patients and families find themselves overwhelmed.

The PATCH Network is here to help you navigate everything related to CHD including understanding your condition and treatment, helping you find the care you need, or assisting you in finding and acquiring the benefits and resources you need. We want you to know you are not alone.
