Pediatric Cardiology at Renown Health

Pediatric Cardiology

Cardiac Care for Kids

For more than 25 years, Children’s Heart Center Nevada* and Renown Children’s Hospital have worked closely to coordinate exceptional congenital cardiac care for our community on an inpatient and outpatient basis. We primarily service the greater Reno and Carson City area as well as parts of Northeastern California. We had approximately 8,000 patient contacts in 2023. We provide specialty care most commonly to newborns, infants and children.

Early detection of congenital heart disease is critical to achieving better outcomes. Children’s Heart Center Nevada’s unique Fetal Cardiology Program is one of the largest in the nation. Our physicians work closely with area perinatologists to diagnosis issues before birth. This allows better preparation for parents and physicians. Our fetal cardiology program is one of only five in the United States to receive Fetal Echocardiography Accreditation by the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine. Our center has achieved a 90% fetal detection rate of complex congenital heart disease. This is the highest in the country and three times the national average.

Our physicians are skilled in making a structural and functional assessment of the heart and related anatomy. Tests commonly performed include, but are not limited to, electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, treadmill stress testing and event monitoring.

For those patients who may need heart surgery or interventional care, our pediatric cardiologists work closely with pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons and interventionalists to determine the appropriate treatment and service center best suited for patients and their families. We provide follow-up care for patients requiring out of area services locally. We look forward to expanding our diagnostic and treatment services in the future to meet the needs of our growing community.
