The Driscoll Heart Center:
Committed to Serving Children Throughout South Texas 
With a Whole-Hearted Approach


Driscoll Children’s Hospital has been dedicated to providing premiere pediatric cardiac care and healing for children throughout South Texas for more than 60 years. Driscoll is leading the way early on with cardiac outreach for children and families from Corpus Christi to Brownsville and back again. Driscoll continues to take the skills and continuum of care offered to each child to new heights. 

The Driscoll Heart Center is on a mission — one steeped in a legacy of dedication and commitment. “Our mission,” explains Stephen Langley, MD, FRCS (Cth), FETCS, Chief of Cardiac Surgery and Medical Director of The Driscoll Heart Center, “is to continue the Driscoll journey as we enhance cardiac services offered to every child in South Texas to such a level that those services will match or exceed services offered at any pediatric heart program anywhere in the world.   We are on a journey, there is no destination,” he adds thoughtfully, “it is a constant process, a constant pursuit.

“Our team is completely committed to that mission, that vision. We all know what we do here at Driscoll is – and always has been – for the children and their families. We are there for them anytime – day or night – doing what is best for the patient and their family, at the highest level. That’s it.  Nothing else. It’s as simple as that.”

The Driscoll Heart Center’s leadership is continuing to expand and grow cardiac processes, technologies, physician skills, cardiac capabilities and staff at every turn. The Heart Center Team has a plan designed specifically to get right to the heart of the matter, including cardiovascular surgery, cardiology, intensive cardiac care in the newly established Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), neonatology, anesthesiology services and maternal fetal care and fetal cardiology — all available for every child, every family in need throughout South Texas.
