  • Angina/chest pain
  • Arrhythmia, including atrial fibrillation
  • Heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy)
  • Heart infection (infective endocarditis)
  • Pericarditis
  • Heart failure
  • Heart murmurs
  • Pediatric heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Structural heart disease

We offer a wide range of treatment options for our patients, including the most advanced therapies and procedures. Your care team works with your family to design an effective treatment plan for your child’s diagnosis and needs, beginning as soon as you walk through our doors.

Why Choose Providence for Pediatric Heart Care?

As the only children’s hospital in Alaska, we show up for the littlest hearts in a big way. Your child’s heart care team is at your family’s side for every step of your child’s treatment and recovery, from monitoring and medication to surgery and support. Here are five more reasons you can trust Providence with your child’s care:

Our patients are at the heart of everything we do, which is why we’re always working to make your family’s experience better. Our family-centered care encourages participation, communication and collaboration between your family and your child’s doctors. With family-centered care, we reduce stress for you, your child and your family. And it’s one reason families have trusted us with their children’s heart care for more than 25 years.

A hospital visit can be scary for your child – and for your entire family. That’s why we offer certified child life specialists to help make the experience easier for everyone, including siblings. We provide a safe environment for your child to ask questions and manage their emotions using play, distraction and age-appropriate education. We’ve also taken the Comfort Promise to do everything we can to limit painful experiences.

A positive care experience always takes a team! Our compassionate pediatric cardiologists work closely with interventional cardiologists, surgeons, pediatric anesthesiologists, social workers, specialty nurses and other caregivers to give your child whole-person, personalized care. We also team up with your child’s primary care physician and other doctors to ensure all healthcare is coordinated – even across different locations. And we have a 24/7 transfer center to help quickly get patients from across the state to us.

We understand that the impact of heart disease is greater in some communities. Genetics plays a part, but unequal access to great health care is also a factor. At Providence, we make sure each of our patients has access to the best heart care. As part of that commitment, we offer outreach locations so patients and their families don’t have to travel far to receive care. We also offer translation services and financial counseling and assistance.

We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, spiritual, gender and sexual identities of each member of our diverse community. In keeping with our Mission, Providence offers financial assistance programs that provide free and low-cost care to those who are eligible. We aim to treat every patient equally and with dignity – whoever they are, and wherever they are in their journey.

We are part of Providence Alaska, which features world-class cardiologists in two hospitals and four outpatient centers. When your child is a patient at Providence, your family benefits from a collaborative network that includes award-winning physicians, scientists, researchers and caregivers across 51 hospitals in seven states. The power of our network is one of the reasons more than 500 pediatric heart patients and their families choose the Children’s Hospital at Providence each year.
