About Paediatric & Congenital Heart Centre

Institut Jantung Negara set up the Paediatric and Congenital Heart Centre (PCHC) in September 2012 as a One-Stop centre for all paediatric and congenital heart patients. With its facilities and infrastructure, this centre provides comprehensive care for babies, children and adolescents with heart disease as well as adults with congenital heart disease. PCHC aims to be the preferred referral centre for treatment of paediatric and congenital heart conditions.

Since the establishment of the PCHC, treatment of paediatric and congenital cases in IJN is more streamlined. With the improved process flow in each service area, patients and their caregivers can be assured a fast response and low waiting times. Thanks to a dedicated team of cardiologists, surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health personnel under the centre, patients receive the best treatment possible.
