On November 5 and 6, 2021, the Children's Heart Center Linz will celebrate its 25th birthday. On the occasion of this birthday, we are organizing a scientific symposium with top-class faculty and a festive ceremony.
What began in the early 1990s without any pre-existing structures had grown in 1995 to the point that the care of children with congenital heart defects could start its official operation as the Children‘s Heart Center Linz.
By consistently focusing on the highest quality of treatment and complex issues, our center soon gained international recognition and established two flagships in the field of neonatal heart surgery and prenatal therapy.
Since 1995, the number of patients treated and the number of referring physicians from Austria and abroad has steadily increased. Today, about 350 cardiac surgeries and the same number of cardiac catheterizations are performed annually. The international comparison in the ECHSA database certifies the highest quality of the Children‘s Heart Center Linz year after year.
Teamwork has been a top priority here from the very beginning and is certainly one of the key factors for our positive development. Center therefore means not only the activities of pediatric cardiac surgery and pediatric cardiology, but also, quite significantly, includes the colleagues in anesthesiology and intensive care, neonatology, prenatal medicine, pediatric radiology, cardiotechnology, psychology, as well as the nursing teams of the intensive care and bed wards, the outpatient clinics and ORs, and many more.
We want to celebrate the 25th anniversary with a symposium. To keep our finger on the pulse, we have invited top-class speakers from around the world to share the latest developments with us, many of whom have long had a special connection with the Children‘s Heart Center Linz.
