The HEARTest Yard
During the roller coaster of emotions and logistical chaos with T.J.’s surgeries, hospital stays and medical needs, we were blessed to have tremendous in-home nurses that monitored T.J.’s growth, development and health during the first few weeks after he was released from the hospital. We knew it was our calling to help other families venturing down the same path we we re journeying. It was then, in 2013, that we established The HEARTest Yard program to cover 100 hours of in-home nursing care for families bringing their little heart baby home from the hospital. In December of 2020, we opened The HEARTest Yard Congenital Heart Center to provide comprehensive medical care to cardiac patients at Levine Children’s Hospital from birth through adulthood.
