Why Is There a Need for This Expansion?
Congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect in the United States, affecting approximately one percent of all American children. The age at which children present for specialized care ranges from newborns to adolescents.

These children are seen daily at Wolfson Children's Hospital, some critically ill, others with no obvious symptoms. No matter what the case, when a child's life is at stake, there is always a sense of urgency.

Technological advances enable pediatric cardiologists to positively impact the life expectancy and quality of life of children with heart problems. The age of the current heart catheterization lab at Wolfson - 11+ years - and the growing technological and patient demands of the pediatric cardiovascular program make the addition of a second children's laboratory a number-one priority.

The New Heart Catheterization Laboratory
Expected to open during the summer of 2007, the new heart catheterization laboratory will include custom-designed, state-of-the art equipment, including the first biplane flat-panel system released commercially by GE Healthcare and the first to be installed in a pediatric lab. Features include:
  • Minimal radiation exposure to patients, physicians and staff
  • Reduction in need for rescanning
  • Significant enhancement of image quality
  • Digital technology that allows for long-term electronic storage and access to remote cardiac images

Join the National Football League's Donovin Darius in his campaign to raise $2 million for this vital expansion: $1.5 million for equipment and approximately $500,000 for installation. Make a donation to Wolfson Children's Hospital today.

Advances such as these will benefit many generations to come. It is an integral reason for Wolfson's growing reputation as a leading regional children's hospital, bringing world-class medical care to the children of Northeast Florida, Southeast Georgia and beyond.
