Pediatric Specialty Center at Middletown

Pediatric Specialty Center at Middletown provides world-class cardiovascular care to children of all ages in the Hudson Valley and western Fairfield county. We use our expertise, developed from over 30 years of experience, to find the best solution for each patient’s unique circumstances. All of our physicians are full-time faculty at New York Medical College and are responsible for the pediatric cardiovascular  programs as medical staff of the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.

Pediatric Cardiology

We are dedicated to patient care, research and education. Our Pediatric Cardiology team has pioneered the use of treatments for a wide range of children’s cardiovascular problems in the Hudson Valley. We continue to develop new strategies to diagnose and treat cardiac conditions in children of all ages – from the prenatal period through young adulthood. Some examples include our Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center (in collaboration with our adult cardiology colleagues), the use of 3D echocardiography and the use of advanced electrophysiology procedures in young children.
