The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Pediatric Heart Transplant program is one of the oldest and most successful programs of its kind in the United States. Our program has transplanted over 250 children to date. We perform an average of 15 transplants each year, making us one of the busiest pediatric heart transplant programs in the nation. Despite the high volume and complexity of our patients' conditions, our one- and five-year survival outcomes lead the nation.
