Kids Should Be Kids


There's nothing like a child's heart. It's complicated, fascinating and full of possibilities. Every kid should have a chance to go through life feeling strong, and every parent should feel confident their child will receive the best pediatric cardiology care when an issue arises. We get it — we're parents, too. And we're proud that AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, is one of the finest pediatric heart hospitals in the country. Our team is made up of dozens of world-class pediatric cardiologists and other specialists under a single roof to offer your child the latest, most effective cardiology treatments for a range of kids' heart conditions.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.

Heart Screenings for Student Athletes

High school student athletes in Brevard, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia Counties are now required to complete an electrocardiogram (ECG) screening prior to participating in any school sports. These screenings may detect unknown heart issues and prevent life-threatening heart arrhythmias.

We are proud to offer ECG screening appointments, where all scans will be reviewed by our experienced cardiologists. Athletes whose ECGs are found to be abnormal can be seen for a full evaluation by our cardiologists, often at the same visit.

ECG screenings are offered with an easy $15 self-pay option that does not require a separate referral.

Patient Testimonial


I couldn't be more satisfied with how quickly and efficiently Dr. Trivedi handled Valeria's case. After a cardiac ablation on August 10, 2020, she was able to finish in 7th place; previously she could never finish less than 100th place. She crossed the finish line today and cried with pride.
