If your child has a heart condition, we have answers

Of every 1,000 children born, nine have heart conditions ranging from mild heart murmurs to those that require surgery.

Here at Geisigner’s Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in central Pennsylvania, our team of physicians dedicates their lives and careers to caring for your child’s heart and finding the right answers. 

Our expert pediatric cardiologists and heart surgeons work together to treat the most common to the most complex heart conditions. In addition, other specialized members of your child’s heart team could include: 

  • Pediatric intensivists and critical care specialists
  • Neonatologists who care for premature infants and sick newborns
  • Other pediatric specialists involved in caring for children with complex conditions
  • Specially trained nurses and other staff members

We also travel to dozens of Pennsylvania communities with high-tech diagnostic heart tools, just to catch problems early, closer to your home. From the first heartbeat you hear before your baby’s birth, we’re dedicated to your child—for a lifetime.
