Dr. Justin Yeh is the medical director of the Acute Cardiac Unit at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.

After graduating from Albany Medical College, Dr. Yeh completed his residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Orange County. He went on to Children's National Medical center for additional postgraduate training, including fellowships in pediatric cardiology and critical care.

Dr. Yeh spent five years at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, working in both the cardiac intensive care unit and the heart failure/transplant service. He is interested in the use of ventricular assist devices to support children with advanced heart failure. He is using his knowledge and experience to enhance care of these children as part of the medical leadership team supporting Rady Children's heart transplantation services.

Dr. Yeh is a member of the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society, an organization of physicians, nurses and NP's from across the nation who work in cardiac ICU's.

At Rady Children's, Dr. Yeh's goal is to create a collaborative environment where cardiac surgery, critical care, neonatology, cardiology and nursing can come together to deliver world-class care to children and young adults with heart disease.
