Pediatric Pulmonary Hypertension Program

A Pulmonary Hypertension Comprehensive Care Center

The Pediatric Pulmonary Hypertension Clinical and Research Program at Children's Hospital provides diagnosis and treatment for children affected by, or at risk of, high blood pressure in the lung (pulmonary) circulation.

Caring for children with PH requires a focused team to coordinate care in a family-centered environment. We provide a nationally-recognized multidisciplinary program for children and families dealing with pulmonary hypertension.

Your experience starts with our dedicated program coordinator, who works directly with you and your family to coordinate visits and facilitate communication with the medical team.
