The Cardiology Outpatient Specialty Center provides extensive evaluation and management of patients with a wide range of congenital and acquired heart disease, including heart murmurs, chest pain, palpitations, dizziness, syncope (fainting), hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. The Cardiology Center has two satellite centers—one in Long Beach and one in Torrance—where expectant mothers can also receive fetal heart care.
To make it convenient for patients and their families, Miller Children’s has diagnostic care available at satellite locations, as well as the hospital. Both of the Cardiology Outpatient Centers house advanced cardiovascular equipment, such as onsite EKG and ECHO. This allows the cardiology care team the ability to diagnose a wide range of heart and vascular conditions for babies, infants, children and adolescents. Once treatment plans are made, the patient goes through a comprehensive follow-up program to monitor the condition and reinforce preventative care.
The Cardiology Specialty Center has Long Beach and South Bay satellite centers to serve children with heart conditions, and their families, close to home. The Cardiology Center in Long Beach is CCS certified; allowing children who receive CCS coverage to visit the outpatient center on special days, as well as children with Medi-Cal, HMO and private coverage.
