BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — John Oshei Children's Hospital is receiving high accolades from one non-profit organization.

The hospital was named an Accredited Center of Care by the Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF)-- and is only one of 38 institutions across North America accredited by the organization.

"We are glad that Oishei Children's Hospital joins 38 other accredited centers across the U.S. and Canada that are all highly skilled and experienced in treating all forms of cardiomyopathy in children," says Lisa Yue, CCF's founding executive director.

Cardiomyopathy is a complex disease that affects how the heart pumps blood through the body. John Oshei Children's Hospital received recognition from CCF for its commitment to providing high-quality cardiac care to patients.

Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation is a national organization committed to helping and improving health outcomes for children who are diagnosed with cardiomyopathy.
