Why Choose Covenant for Pediatric Heart Disease Care?

As the only licensed, freestanding children’s hospital in the region, we show up for the littlest hearts in a big way. Your child’s heart care team is at your family’s side 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 us with your child’s care:

A positive care experience always takes a team! Our pediatric cardiologists work closely with cardiothoracic surgeons and other caregivers to provide your child with whole-person, personalized and compassionate care. And with ICU and NICU services available, your child can get the comprehensive care they need – all under one roof.

We partner with local institutions to provide world-class care for our patients. We’re the only hospital in the region to offer pediatric cardiovascular surgery through a partnership with Cook Children’s Hospital. Depending on the procedure, Cook’s team of expert surgeons may either perform the surgery here at Covenant Children's or at Cook’s campus in Fort Worth. This partnership means our care is even more coordinated and patient focused.

Our patients are at the heart of everything we do, which is why we’re always looking for ways to make your family’s experience better. We coordinate your child’s care across physicians and locations. This means that, even if your child requires surgery at Cook’s campus, they can receive their follow-up care closer to home – easing the travel burden for your family.

We understand 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 Covenant Children’s Hospital, we make sure each of our patients has access to the best heart care. As part of this commitment, we offer translation services for our non-English-speaking patients and families.

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, we offer 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’re part of Covenant Health, and Covenant is part of the Providence family. So when your child is our patient, 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 so many pediatric heart patients and their families choose us for their care each year.
