Children's Hospital Heart Center Continues to Expand Outreach Efforts to Increase Access to Quality Care for More Families
Date:2/14/2008

February is National American Heart Month

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is continuing to grow its outreach efforts with new and expanded outpatient services. Experts from the Heart Center at Children's Hospital are increasing access to state-of-the-art pediatric cardiac care for families from Latrobe, Greensburg, Johnstown, Altoona, Sharon and more.

By providing expanded and new pediatric cardiac services for the tiniest of hearts, families throughout the region will have access to all of the services offered at Children's.

With 12 convenient locations throughout western Pennsylvania, including Oakland; three ambulatory care centers in the North Hills, Monroeville and Bethel Park; and eight outreach locations, Children's continues to focus its efforts to make it easier for families to gain access to Children's doctors. The Heart Center performs more than 35,000 patient visits and heart tests each year.

At most sites, weekly clinics are offered and patients can often be seen within three days of calling for a new appointment, sometimes even sooner, said Steven A. Webber, MBChB, chief of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at Children's Hospital, adding that most locations offer advanced cardiac testing needed to make a diagnosis (such as electrocardiograms, echocardiograms and 24-hour Holter tests) during the same visit.

Latrobe/Greensburg

Bryan Funari, MD, has now joined Frederick Sherman, MD, in the Latrobe office to offer care by experts from the Heart Center at Children's, one of the nation's leading pediatric cardiac care facilities. In Latrobe, Drs. Sherman and Funari see children of all ages, two Wednesdays per month, with any type of heart problem, including heart murmurs, chest pain, fainting, palpitations and high blood pressure. The Greensburg office that opened recently is staffed by Dr. Funari every Tuesday and offers access to all the services
