How We Offer Patient Support

We know that caring for your child's cardiac needs is just the beginning. We've implemented a wide variety of patient and family support services to address emotional and quality of life concerns—all in an effort to help you and your child get through this challenging time. Our resources for cardiac patients and their families provide comfort, assistance and guidance at every step of the journey.
