Specialized heart care for all ages
The Providence Center for Congenital Heart Disease treats patients of all ages with congenital heart disease throughout Washington, Idaho & Montana. Our cardiac physician team has treated children and adults with congenital heart disease in the Inland Northwest for more than 30 years. We work closely with primary care doctors to provide the best access to care for congenital heart disease.
Our doctors also travel to satellite clinics, conveniently located throughout central and eastern Washington and northern Idaho. Schedules and services vary. Please contact us for details.
Congenital Heart Disease doctors for Kids
Our pediatric congenital heart disease program brings together specialists in cardiology, cardiac surgery and cardiac anesthesiology to deliver expert, personalized care for infants and children with congenital heart disease—all in one location at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.
Our partnership with the Providence Health Care Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals ensures your child will have access to some of the best equipment and innovative treatment options in the country.
Providence Adult and Teen Congenital Heart Program (PATCH)
Many congenital heart programs focus on pediatrics and stop caring for patients when they become adults. Our clinic is different. Adult and teen patients still require the skills of a doctor specializing in congenital heart defects. That's why Providence created the Providence Adult and Teen Congenital Heart (PATCH) Program.
We are an ACHD Accredited Comprehensive Care Center by the Adult Congenital Heart Association—a mark of distinction for congenital heart disease programs, endorsed by the major cardiology societies.
PATCH is conveniently located in the same location as our pediatric congenital heart disease clinic, providing a seamless transition from pediatric to adult medical care, including a bi-monthly support group for teens and young adults transitioning to adult care.
Located on the Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center campus, we can provide comprehensive adult cardiac care, drawing on expertise of providers specializing in both congenital and acquired heart disease.
Cardiac dare during pregnancy
We work closely with our colleagues in maternal fetal medicine to provide care to pregnant patients with heart disease or with pregnant moms who have recently learned their child may have a heart defect.
Elliott Naftzger has needed heart monitoring since birth. Now age 5, she and her parents, Rachel and Carter, can save the three-hour drive to Spokane because Providence is bringing the imaging unit to their and others’ communities.
Expectant mom Amanda’s heart wouldn’t stop racing. She woke up at 6 a.m. with an elevated heart rate, and by 11 a.m. it hadn’t returned to normal. "Go to the emergency department," her midwife advised.
Daniel regrets that he didn’t capture his mother’s life story and precious moments on video before she passed away, but that inspired him to create legacy documentaries for others, so that their life stories can be shared with future generations.
