This is public information that needs to be given to families/public so that they can make the best decisions on where to take their complex children for care. There needs to be transparency especially to parents of these children. This does not interact with HIPAA and is the publics right to know these facts to make informed decisions for the well being of their children. You can find stories on this below.
Ceo is Dr. Michael Karpf and you may also find more on WUKY that lead to this petition.
Also, we need these rates to be broken down by surgical type, norwood, cath,arterial switch etc. So the public knows if this is the proper institution to care for their childs needs, no matter the CHD.

Dr. Michael Karpf
Make public mortality rate ped cardiothoracic surgery 2010,2011,1012. The rates need to be broken down in an easier to understand manner, such as rates for norwood procedure,arterial switch, ASD closing etc. So that parents can make an informed decision as to if this institution can care for their childs specific type of CHD. Thank you.
