Pediatric cardiology services are provided through our affiliation with Seattle Children’s and Western Montana Clinic, where patients are treated for congenital heart defects (atrial and ventricular septal defects, patent ductus arteriosus, hypoplastic left heart, and other) and acquired issues such as cardiomyopathy or coronary artery aneurysms. The clinic also evaluates for chest pain or syncope (fainting). For children requiring major heart surgery, Community Children’s works closely with cardiology experts at Seattle Children’s and then transitions care back to Missoula.
