Cardiology

The pediatric cardiology team provides expertise and ongoing assessment and treatment for children and infants with cardiac issues, including arrhythmias and heart defects. We provide the full spectrum clinical, on-call coverage for patients at NHRMC or who receive outpatient care through the Nunnelee Pediatric Specialty Clinics. The cardiologist collaborates with intensivists, neonatologists and hospitalists and is available for consult when there are
complex cardiology conditions.
