About the Division of Pediatric Cardiology

The Division of Pediatric Cardiology offers modern, comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients with known or suspected heart disease. We treat patients ranging in age from the unborn fetus to the young adult and deliver care both in Chapel Hill and in convenient clinics located throughout North Carolina. Our specialists provide cardiac services throughout North Carolina via a network of outpatient clinics that extends across the State of North Carolina.

Many health care professionals are involved in treating your child. Our clinicians work closely with the Division of Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery, which brings the full range of state-of-the-art surgical procedures to N.C. Children's Hospital, as well as the Newborn Critical Care Center and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

When hospitalized, patients are cared for at North Carolina Children's Hospital. The hospital's new facilities opened on the UNC campus in 2002 to provide care of children with complex diseases as well as routine problems in all the pediatric subspecialties. Children with heart problems are treated in the Children's Intermediate Cardiac Care (CICC) Unit located on the fifth floor of the Children's Hospital. This unit offers sophisticated technology such as an automated telemetry observation system that allows us to provide optimal care for our patients.
