The Joseph S. Bruno Pediatric Heart Center in the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children fulfills the dream of having the cardiovascular (heart) patient and family at the center of care. This "heart hospital within a hospital" is built upon a single platform of care that places key services in three connected buildings.
This new single platform of care includes:
A dedicated team of heart doctors, nurses and other medical professionals join forces to help each patient to reach his or her full potential. In addition, social workers, child life therapists, counselors, nutritionists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and chaplains support this team and our patients and their families. This commitment to patient-centered care shows that Children's of Alabama truly lives the motto "Healthcare as Amazing as Their Potential."
