About Our Practice

Pediatrix® Cardiology Associates (formerly Pediatric Cardiology Associates) has proudly served infants, children, adolescents and young adults with heart conditions for 45 years with the goal to provide quality comprehensive care from conception through adulthood. Founded in 1977, we developed the first pediatric cardiology program on Florida’s west coast, and we continue to evolve our practice to meet the growing needs of our cardiac patients.

Through the years, nationally and internationally respected heart specialists have joined our practice, providing care in all areas of pediatric cardiology, including arrhythmia, fetal, therapeutic interventions and transplant cardiology. However, we don’t stop when our patients reach adulthood.

With one of the most extensive cardiology programs in Florida, we also specialize in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). Whether you’ve been our patient for the first 18 years of your life or you are new to our practice, we feel privileged to provide quality, life-long congenital heart care to the growing population of adults with congenital heart disease.

Every patient, and every patient’s family, is important to us. We take the necessary time to educate our patients and their families about their unique cardiac conditions and include them in developing the most viable treatment plan. We do so in a comfortable, family-friendly environment to provide patients of all ages the experience they deserve.

As part of Pediatrix Medical Group, we have access to nearly 200 pediatric cardiologists and adult congenital heart disease specialists nationwide, giving us opportunities to collaborate and continually explore new ways to advance care for our pediatric cardiology and adult congenital heart disease patients.
