Texas Children's is now among an elite group of only five pediatric members in the nation to receive this coveted distinction. The Colloquium is the first organization to develop an improvement science-based approach to heart failure accreditation using a continuum of care model. It is also the only organization that grants Institute and System accreditation for heart failure.

"We are honored to be recognized as a member of this expert group," said Dr. Daniel J. Penny, chief of cardiology at Texas Children's Hospital and section head and professor of pediatrics-cardiology at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). "This accreditation further illustrates the commitment our team is making to provide the best possible care for patients with heart failure."

Texas Children's achieved 14 significant milestones throughout the accreditation process within four domains: community, hospital, clinician and science. The achieved milestones include: Heart Failure Leadership Team; Sudden Cardiac Arrest Program; Community Screening for Heart Failure; Heart Transplant Program; Ventricular Assist Device Program; Primary Investigator IRB Approved Research; Ventricular Assist Device Education; Length of Stay Reduction; IRB Approved Research; Registry Participation; Hospital Based Pediatric Heart Failure
