Nearly 40,000 babies are born with congenital heart defects every year in the United States. In addition, acquired heart disease in children and adolescents is on the rise.
Our network of Pediatrix pediatric cardiologists provides comprehensive pediatric cardiology care to a broad range of patients, including unborn babies, newborns, children and adolescents.
Providing care for 550 pediatric cardiology patients a day, their mission is to detect problems early through advanced medical diagnostics, as well as collaborate with hospitalists, practitioners, cardiac surgeons and families to determine suitable treatment plans, including cardiac surgery, when required, and medical therapy.
As pediatric cardiologists, early detection of heart problems and proper, timely treatment is critical to the health and longevity of our pediatric cardiology patients. Partnering with hospitals for more than four decades, we provide intuitive, customized solutions to meet your facility’s specific pediatric cardiology needs.
Collaborate across the continuum
Pediatric cardiology care requires coordination among pediatric cardiologists, advanced-practice providers, sonographers and related clinical professionals to ensure a fully aligned and cooperative approach.
Provide great care
Delivering evidence-based, standardized care is the key to positive patient outcomes. Comprehensive evaluations and patient-centered, compassionate care ensure thorough diagnosis and timely treatment.
Strengthen referral networks
Augment the services of local pediatric cardiologists and other specialists in your community. Enable patients with complex conditions such as congenital heart defects and acquired heart disease to receive care close to home.
Measure and improve metrics
Hospitals are challenged to improve quality while simultaneously reducing costs. Data-driven improvement initiatives can boost clinical performance in areas such as interventional cardiac catheterization, transcatheter stent placement, balloon angioplasty and balloon valvuloplasty.
Less burdensome billing
Our staff will handle all in-hospital billing information and authorization requests, reducing administrative time and costs. And, if you see a patient for the first time in your office (not the hospital), you may bill the visit as a new patient.
