    We don't do pediatric cardiology, so I can't answer your question about scoring. I don't even know who's the best, but I know University of Alabama Birmingham is ranked pretty high in terms of pediatric cardiology. Doesn't Vanderbilt also do ped cardiology?

    I realize this post might be too late to help you, but I just saw your question. I work at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta in the Sibley Heart Center. We are the third busiest pediatric heart center in the country. If you need more information about heart surgery, congenital heart disease, or related topics, I'd be glad to help.

    I'm also including a link to the Southeastern Pediatric Cardiovascular Society, an organization for healthcare professionals who care for children and adults with congenital and acquired heart disease. One of the pages has some helpful links that might be of interest to you.

    There is a hospital in St. Louis, MO that specializes in ped hearts/cardiovascular. One of my 2 y/o pts during my peds rotation had open heart there when she was an infant. Here is the website http://www.haveaheartforkids.com/
