Children’s Heart Fund

Parents of children with heart disorders founded the Children’s Heart Fund at Mount Sinai in 1998 to provide funding for clinical care, educational research, and therapeutic recreational programs for the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Parents, along with friends and staff of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai operate the fund. To date, the fund makes important contributions to children’s cardiology at the Mount Sinai Health System: 

  • Providing educational resources for the families of children with congenital heart defects
  • Purchasing state-of-the-art echocardiography machines
  • Facilitating mission-critical research projects
  • Sponsoring pediatric cardiology fellowship training
  • Providing resources for patients transitioning from pediatrics to adult services
  • Equipping the family room of the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit with a computer
