WVU’s pediatric heart program has an outstanding reputation. WVU is a member of the Pediatric Cardiac Care Quality Assurance Consortium and is the referral center for West Virginia and parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

Pediatric cardiology outreach clinics are held in six cities – Beckley, Huntington, Lewisburg, Martinsburg, Parkersburg, and Wheeling.
