What to expect.

Our pediatric heart teams provide family-centered care, which means the entire family is part of your child’s treatment plan. A team of doctors across various specialties work with support staff to ensure your child gets the best and latest treatment options.

You will work with your primary cardiologist, but you and your child will meet many specialists, who all want the same thing—your child’s recovery from heart disease.

Some of the diagnostic exams your child’s treatment team might recommend include:

  • Blood work
  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Echocardiogram
  • MRI
  • Electrocardiogram
  • An exercise test 

We’ll work to ensure your child’s treatment journey is seamless across our clinics and hospitals and through virtual follow-ups at your home.
