What is special about McLane Children's cardiology?
McLane Children’s Hospital Scott & White is the area’s only acute care pediatric hospital between Dallas and Austin, Texas. An experienced team of physicians, residents, nurses, and technicians care for young patients in an effective and reassuring way. Pediatric specialty outpatient clinics and our children’s hospital serve children in a
family-centered care environment, with expertise and resources dedicated to young patients.
Children with heart disease or defects benefit from the integrated care offered at McLane Children's. Through our network of physicians and the
electronic medical records system available at all Scott & White locations across Central Texas, we are able to offer continuity of care throughout their lives—from childhood to adulthood. The pediatric cardiology department is staffed by experts trained in the cardiovascular care of children.
How can I get my child in to see a pediatric cardiologist?
If your child is a
Scott & White Health Plan patient, you will be referred to a pediatric cardiologist if your child’s physician believes your child has a heart condition. Call 877-724-KIDS (5437) to make an appointment with one of our pediatric cardiologists.
Some health plans may require a referral prior to seeing a pediatric cardiologist. Contact your insurance company to learn about your child’s coverage.
